An outstanding statue of a fantastic man who was out to keep Scotland a free country. This statue is in a fanatic location in Aberdeen where everyone can see is. Stunning to see when your walking down Union Street.

Having walked past this statue for years, when I took my partner to Aberdeen for the first time, it becomes apparent how large and striking this statue is. The quotes on the base are also interesting. Definitely stop by for some Scottish inspiration.

Nice statue. Not much else to say about this statue. The square in which it sits in nothing special of fancy.
