About St Mary's Loch

"Cross Kirk" itself is in Peebles. It is one of Buchan’s most successful poems and relates the way in which the memory of these landscapes, and in particular St Mary’s Loch could provide a solace and comfort when one was confronted with the horrors of urban poverty and pollution. There is more than a hint of Buchan himself in his description of his father.
