A tribute to one of the most important and bravest men of the scottish history. The statue is in central Aberdeen, there're inscriptions on the sides. It's always a man every Scottish is proud about. Interesting!!

Commanding statue right across from His Majesty's Theatre (also an excellent venue for musical events and plays), next to the Union Terrace Gardens. Much historical info inscribed on the base of the statue.

It’s just a statue. There is no information on it and is something that you would easily just walk past.
