This mounted statue is located right on Princes Street overlooking the Gardens. It is quite the impressive monument and deserves a few minutes of your time admiring it from different angles. I particularly admired the way the horse was so forcefully depicted.
Good location next to Princes Street, near Scottish National Gallery and about half a mile from Waverley Station. Impressive bronze equestrian statue, which has been there since 1906. You will have great photos, because you can see Castle on background
Although this is not really something you expect to do in Edinburgh. It's really worth the money and time to walk up the few hundred steps as the views from the top overlooking the city are just superb. Very happy I decided to do it!
This monument stands tall and proud.

Situatated in the entrance to Princes Street Gardens from Princes Street the Royal Scots Grey Monument is a striking monument to the Scottish battalion.
Well worth taking in during your visit to Edinburgh.
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
