"You have to mean it. And I do mean what I say about this magnificent city, of which I am proud to be a citizen and which will always be my home." Alexander McCall Smith

From Art to Stone –  a Walk of Words

A brief with a difference.  Words from a great author, Alexander McCall Smith, former Professor of Medical Law at the University of Edinburgh and creator of ‘The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency’s are engraved into stone in one of the most prestigious locations in Edinburgh.  A beautiful description of an inspiring city “This is a city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas.  A city so beautiful it breaks the heart again and again”.

Our creatives and artworkers couldn’t wait to get started.  Reviewing architects’ drawings, discussing stone specifications, onsite visits and a trip to the stonemasons’ to see sample engraving, all in a day’s work.  The end result amazing! but don’t take our word for it, take a walk along Ladyfield, Edinburgh and see it for yourself….
