So did Mrs Scott enjoy her helicopter flight?
Watch her coming in to land and her reaction below:
After a helping hand into the helicopter, Margaret Scott was ready for the flight of her life.
Watch the moment she waved goodbye to her neighbours as she took to the skies:
Margaret Scott's son Dougie organised the helicopter flight.
He is now worried about what she is going to think of next:
Mrs Scott's son Dougie arranged the helicopter flight through a family friend, and pilot Murray Grierson from Dumfries was only more than happy to help:
"Mrs Scott will certainly be the oldest passenger I have ever taken on a pleasure flight. I hear she's quite a character though. I'm sure she will love it."
Dougie decided to join his mum in the passenger seat.
Mrs Scott only applied for her passport three years ago, at the age of 95, when she decided she wanted to go on a cruise.
However, going up in a helicopter has been a lifelong dream:
Margaret Scott is celebrating her 98th birthday in a very unique way this year- by taking a ride in a helicopter.
The great-grandmother from Carsethorn, near Dumfries, has only been in an aircraft once before, and that was on a three seater plane on a family holiday to Whitley Bay in 1935.
Mrs Scott, known locally as "wee granny", lives independently in her own house and still frequently drives.
She recently bought herself a new car and said she was "upset" that it only came with a three year warranty.
She has always wanted to take a helicopter flight and her son Dougie managed to arrange it for her special birthday.
