Bruce Statue

It has been a longtime since I posted, but I do really need to get going, and bring the Barra saga to a conclusion.
So! Inspired by Juliet’s website creations; here goes.
There has not been a great deal that has happened in the long break, but significantly, Aberdeen has finally unveiled its statue to commemorate the city's connection to the hero King.
I am just back from a short trip to Scotland and had the opportunity to visit the statue, which, was unveiled on the 6th of May in front of a refurbished Marischal College.
I will not attempt to describe the statue, because Aberdeen City Council, and STV have done a great job in presenting the details, which can be viewed on the links below.
