Looking Out Over Edinburgh

My theme this week is the wonderfully gothic Scott Monument in Edinburgh, a memorial to the great writer Sir Walter Scott, who died in 1832.

The sides of the Scott Monument feature statues of characters from his writing. This is Bailie Nicol Jarvie (I think), from the novel Rob Roy, sculpted by George A. Lawson.
