This monument to Scottish Immigrants seeks to provide a broad perspective on the rise and movement of the Scots
over many continents and centuries. On either side of this Monument you will find Standing Stones which will
assist you in understanding this ancient and ongoing process. The Standing Stones are part of the landscape and history of all the Celtic lands. Many remain in Scotland today. While the original purpose of these
stones is not known, it is believed they served a spiritual purpose, and may have had scientific astronomic
significance as well. We have adopted them in the monument as symbolic of Scotland's ancient past.
