Sir Walter Scott plaque
Sir Walter Scott plaque
A plaque from 1932 on the wall of Musselburgh's town hall commemorates the poet and novelist being granted freedom of the burgh in 1799. Between 1797 and 1808, Scott was a regular visitor to the town while serving as Quartermaster for a volunteer regiment of Edinburgh militia during the Napoleonic wars. The plaque states that it was during this time that he wrote substantial parts of his ballad-style epic, 'The Lay Of The Last Minstrel' which proved to be a runaway success.
