This statue, which is actually pretty impressive, is yet another one along Princes Street. It honors the man who won the Battle of Waterloo and is worth pausing to look at along with all the other monuments along this street.
The statue of the Duke of Wellington in Glasgow always has a traffic cone on his head, in fact it has been an iconic image in Glasgow.
Edinburgh folk are obviously have more respect for the Iron Duke who sits atop his rearing horse forever...More

An impressive statue of the Duke of Wellington and a horse rearing up. A worthy tribute to one of Britain's greatest sons. It sits opposite the Balmoral and Waverly station, so no excuse for not visiting.
Having reviewed the one in Glasgow, I felt obliged to check this one as well.

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of
Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
