This shows the changes to the access roads and the car parking area.

The photograph below shows how well the building is shaped to protect the little that remains of the original monument.

There are several other castings of this same statue around the world.

A wider view. The plan was to take this again when the gardens are finished and bedded in but the layout is in exactly the same condition over four years later.

This gives you a view of the statue in more detail, taken from ground level. This is the view of the statue that the original artist in 1879 - William Grant Stevenson RSA, 1849-1919, of Edinburgh - intended people to have, that of looking up from below.

A smaller version can be seen at Burns Cottage in Alloway but there seem to be no other full-sized castings in the UK.
