The Scottish National War Memorial

The Scottish National War Memorial commemorates nearly 150,000 Scottish casualties in the First World War, 1914 – 1918, over 50,000 in the Second World War, 1939 – 1945 and the campaigns since 1945, including the Malayan Emergency, the Korean War, Northern Ireland, the Falklands War and the Gulf War.

The Memorial is to be found in Crown Square at the very top of the rock on which Edinburgh Castle stands. In 1927 the architect Sir Robert Lorimer and two hundred Scottish artists and craftsmen created a serene Hall Of Honour and Shrine where the names of the dead are contained in books that are on permanent display.
