During 2013 a project was initiated to photograph and record all areas of the Scottish National War Memorial.
The project continues, and on this page you have the opportunity to view a sample of the photographs taken. The gallery will be expanded throughout the course of 2014 and information provided as to which artist created each piece. To view the overall content of a Gallery simply click on one of the photographs below. When inside a Gallery, clicking on individual photos will expand them to full size and include captions.
At some stage in the future, visitors to the site will also be able to purchase photographs online.
