MARGO MacDonald's legacy will be remembered by people across Scotland, a number of whom left tributes on heraldscotland.com

Euan Leckie

"She was an extremely intelligent, convincing and principled lady who played a big part in the transformation of our country. No silver spoon beginnings, no easy path into politics - unlike many of our representatives today. I didn't always agree with her, but Scotland has surely lost a champion."

Andrew McBride

"A great figure in Scottish politics. Particularly sad she didn't get to see the referendum she campaigned her whole life for."

James Anderson

"I will miss listening to this lady speak, I really will. She was inspiring and 'down to earth' in equal measure. Humble and humorous, generous and clever. She belongs to a small generational group of thinkers (she was not 'just' a politician) who informed and shaped my own political outlook. Our Parliament will not be quite the same without her."

Martin Kelly

"Thank you Margo, for all you have done for your constituents and for Scotland. You may not have got to see the promised land, but you certainly have helped us get a lot closer [to it]. We have indeed lost a bright light today."

Danny McKenna

"The type of person who would represent her ideals and constituents without folding to party politics or pressure. The ideal representative, and a model for all future politicians in an independent Scotland."

Alex McEwan

"Very few achieve what Margo did and still retain the respect of the many across politics and in the wider community. She will be sadly missed and fondly remembered."
