The Gothic Rocket: The Scott Monument with Historic Environment Scotland

The Scott Monument is the Victorian Gothic monument dedicated to writer Sir Walter Scott. From alternative designs to pioneering photographs of the monument under construction and even the odd souvenir, we’ll examine the archives to see how this iconic land mark has endured on Princes Street, Edinburgh since its completion in 1846. This is a free event, however booking is required. To book please email archives@hes.scot or phone 0131 651 6872.
