Scott Monument

The inauguration ceremony for the Scott Monument took place in August 1846. The procession consisting of the Lord Provost, the city officials and the members of the Grand Lodge assembled at the High School and proceeded along London Road and Waterloo Place in the pouring rain to Princes Street which was packed with men, women and children. The regimental bands of the 1st Royals and the 3rd Dragoons provided the music and a Royal Artillery battery consisting of seven guns fired the salute.
