Sir Walter Scott

Found at the southern end of the Mall, the larger-than-life bronze sculpture of Sir Walter Scott memorializes the one of Scotland's most famous and beloved literary figures.

Scott, who is credited with inventing the historical novel, is best known for Ivanhoe and Waverley.

Sir Walter Scott was arranged by a group of Scottish-Americans in honor of the centennial of the author’s birth. Scottish sculptor John Steell constructed this bronze cast from his original marble work, currently located on Princes Street in Edinburgh.

The sculpture stands across the Promenade from Scott’s countryman Robert Burns.
