DUGALD STUART MONUMENT

A memorial to the Scottish philosopher Dugald Stewart (1753 - 1828) modelled on the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates in Athens, Greece; comprising nine fluted columns surrounding an elevated Urn, stepped base and ornamental circular roof.

Dugald Steward was a professor at Edinburgh University and the Chair of Moral Philosophy until his death in 1828.

The structure was completed three years later according to the designs of William Henry Playfair also responsible for the National Monument and City Observatory among his many other notable architectural works.
