Marriage not located on IGI via Internet as at Nov 1999
nor on Carnwath, Lanark OPR, at GSQ 19 Feb 2000.
Need to now look at Cairstairs OPR but as the Carnwath OPR's for marriages only start at 1826, most likely the record will not be located.

There is only one record for a Scott married to a Watson around the time frame.
this is a William Scott married to a Margaret Watson Oct 15 1822, but at Campsie in Stirling.
this is close but not close enough for the places, but still a possilbe if I could find more information.
