From The Lordship of Garioch: An Ancient Title with Royal Links

"At Thomas’s death Mar and Garioch passed to his sister Margaret and thence to her daughter, Isabel, who used the style Countess of Mar and Lady of Garioch. Isabel married first Sir Malcolm Drummond of Drummond, brother of Queen Annabell, and after he died in captivity she was forced to marry his probable murderer, Sir Alexander Stewart, bastard son of that Earl of Buchan whose cruelty and rapacity had earned him the title of “the Wolf of Badenoch”.
