A curious statue
Passing the intersection of Victoria Street and the George V Bridge, is a curious statue of a little dog. After a bit of research, we learned that this is the Edinburgh icon of Greyfriars Bobby, a Skye terrior with faithfully watched over his master's grave for more than 14 years. He would spend all day sitting by the grave in the Greyfriars cemetery, just next door, then come for a meal in a local restaurant (now Bobby's Bar). On his death in 1872, the Baroness Burdett-Coutts erected this statue as a tribute.
