Thank you to:
- Bryan Gourlay, Biggar, Lanarkshire, Scotland
- George T Smith, Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, British Columbia,
Both contacted me within a few hours of this image being added to the
web site, to tell me that the
Scran web site lists all 64 statues of characters from Sir Walter
Scott's novels that are featured on the Scott Monument, complete
with an image of each and details of where they are positioned.
As a result, George Shepherd believes that this statue may be:
minus his sword
George T Smith believes that it may be
"Hal o' the Wynd"
George Shepherd replies:
"Statue No 2 is undoubtedly Dugald Dalgetty.
Look at the suit of armour, his boots and the dagger in his waist-band.
Compare this with the photo in the 'Scran' web site."
