So, whilst I thought I had provided enough evidence to destroy the myth that the last wolf had been killed in Scotland in 1743, the myth survives in full vigour - indeed, the web has ensured that it has bred and multiplied and produced infants of its own.
Nothing daunted, I have now posted yet more (and more conclusive) evidence that the last wolves in Scotland vanished some time after 1630, surely by 1650. You can read it here or on the Research and Reports page of this website. It is free. But I do ask, if you find new evidence, of real wolves or wolf hunting, do please let me know.
