This pageant took place at Mellerstain House, near Gordon in Berwickshire. There were many events in 1932 that marked the centenary of Walter Scott's death, and in the late 1920s and early 1930s historical pageants took place in many locations across Scotland. There is little detail available for this pageant, which may have been mostly processional.
