About Scott Monument

The Scottish novelist, playwright, and poet reached greatness during his lifetime and 14 years after his death, he achieved it once again when the largest monument to any writer was constructed in his honor. Two hundred and eighty seven steps will bring you to the top of the structure where you can enjoy fantastic views of Edinburgh. Decorating the structure are 64 statues depicting characters from Sir Walter's writings. Statues of Scott and his favorite canine companion Maida are featured at the base of the monument.
