Edinburgh Scott Monument

Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) was one of the most important Scottish novelists. His novel Waverley, based on the Jacobite Rising was an instant success, followed by 23 historical novels in the years after. He published all his novels anonymously, initially as a precaution against possible failures, but later he enjoyed prolonging the mystery. This monument, located at Princes Street, is testimony to his place in Scottish literature.
