The Political Martyrs monument is a memorial to the “Scottish Martyrs to Liberty” and stands in Edinburgh.

The Scottish Martyrs were five men who were imprisoned for campaigning for parliamentary reform in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The five were accused of sedition and transported to Australia in 1794, being allowed to return some 15 years later. for more click here
