Artist's Description

Just off the Lawnmarket (a stretch of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Scotland) is Makars’ Court.

Within the Courtyard is The Writers’ Museum which is housed in Lady Stair’s House (built in 1622 for Sir William Grey of Pittendrum). In 1719, the building was bought by Lady Stair. The museum is dedicated to the lives and work of Scotland’s great literary figures, including Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson.

Makars’ Court, which takes its name from the Scots word for a poet, is an evolving national literary monument in which inscribed commemorative flagstones celebrate Scottish writers from the 14th century John Barbour to Ian Crichton-Smith who died in 1998. New flagstones are added on a regular basis.
