Two Edinburgh worthies, Queen Street
Two of the most notable figures of the Scottish Enlightenment who lived in Edinburgh in the late 18th century: the moral philosopher David Hume from Ninewells in Berwickshire and the political economist Adam Smith from Kirkcaldy in Fife, both to be found on the north-west tower of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

"...Scotland, which had done nothing up to the eighteenth century, after the eighteenth century seemed almost to do everything." -- A J Balfour, British Prime Minister, 1905

"Of all the small nations of this earth, perhaps only the ancient Greeks surpass the Scots in their contribution to mankind."-- W S Churchill, British Prime Minister, 1946
