Robertson, 19th century. Statue of Sir Walter Scott, seated with pensive gaze.
This statue was carved by a local mason named Robertson, in honour of the great novelist. Upon the unveiling of the statue nobody could identify the figure and consequently Robertson buried his work in a field. It was later discovered by a farmer, who decided to display the 'stoneman' on Markethill.
