Scott Monument, East Princes Street Gardens
"My dear Sir, do not think I blaspheme when I tell you that your great London, as compared to Dun-Edin, 'mine own romantic town'*, is as prose compared to poetry, or as a great rumbling, rambling heavy epic, compared to a lyric, brief, bright, clear and vital as a flash of lightning. You have nothing like Scott's Monument, or if you had that, and all the glories of architecture assembled together, you have nothing like Arthur's Seat, and above all you have not the Scotch national character; and it is that grand character after all which gives the land its true charm, its true greatness." -- Charlotte Brontė, letter to W Smith Williams, 1850

*Walter Scott's description
