Mark Alexander Boyd (13 January 1562 - April 10, 1601) was a Scottish poet and soldier of fortune. His father was from Pinkell, Carrick in Ayrshire. Boyd left Scotland for France as a young man. There he studied civil law. He took part in the religious wars of the League, fighting on the Catholic side.


He had a collection of Latin poems published in 1592, at a time when he was in South-west France. He returned to Scotland only at the end of his life. He is now remembered for a few poems in Scots.
