Scott Monument

Monuments & Ruins

East Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh, City Of Edinburgh, EH2 2EJ

    On the death of Sir Walter Scott in 1832, the great and good of the city came together to agree on a fitting monument to this outstanding Scottish literary figure.

    In 1836, an architectural competition was launched, inviting designs for an appropriate memorial. Two years later, the trustees approved the design submitted by George Meikle Kemp, and construction began in 1840.
