The Scottish National War Memorial, Edinburgh, Scotland

The Scottish National War Memorial, Edinburgh, Scotland (interior, the entrance to the shrine) - housed in a re-developed barrack block in Crown Square, at the heart of Edinburgh castle. Proposals for a Scottish National War Memorial were put forward in 1917, during the First World War, by John Stewart-Murray, 8th Duke of Atholl, and Capt George Swinton of Kimmerghame (from who's Estate the stone originated). Sir Robert Lorimer, one of the architects involved in the Imperial War Graves Commission, was appointed in 1919, but opposition to a large-scale monument arose from the Cockburn Association and others concerned with the castle's heritage. A more modest scheme to remodel the North Barrack Block was finally agreed in 1923, and the memorial was formally opened on 14 July 1927 by the Prince of Wales. Date: circa late 1920s
