Royal Scots Greys Memorial

Princes Street Gardens
Lothian Region

A handsome equestrian statue overlooks Princes Street Gardens, a tribute to the Royal Scots Greys regiment. I had seen it many times in passing down Edinburgh’s main thoroughfare, but never had it looked so splendid as on this winter evening silhouetted against a brilliant sunset. Scotland has always had a long and proud military tradition, as evidenced by countless war memorials in cities and villages throughout the country.
