'Kidnapped' statue, Corstorphine Road
Alexander Stoddart's 'Kidnapped' statue, depicting the novel's characters David Balfour and Alan Breck Stewart at their final parting on Corstorphine Hill - surely a contender for being the most magnificent statue in all Edinburgh. While the location is wholly appropriate, it seems a shame that it does not occupy a more prominent position, to be enjoyed more frequently by city residents and visitors alike. It was unveiled by Sir Sean Connery in 2004.
