SP125(SE) Edinburgh Castle Gateway



This handsome skillfully-detailed and expertly hand-painted polystone (marble dust and resin) and metal rendition of the ancient gate has the following dimensions:
Length: 34.5cm / 13.6”
Height: 25.2cm / 9.9”
Width: 6cm/ 2.36”

The structure itself replicates in miniature many of the original features that visitors can still see today. Flanking the entrance way are two life-size statues of King Robert the Bruce and Sir William Wallace, the dual heroes of Scotland’s War of Independence. Also featured above the entrance is a painted shield bearing the Scottish Coat-of-Arms with the Lion Rampant.

Just 300 of these unique Edinburgh Castle Gateways have been produced and each comes in its own strong and sturdy, full-colour presentation box complete with a numbered certificate.


Perched high on Castle Rock stands Scotland’s most famous and historic fortresses, Edinburgh Castle.
Royal Castle has stood on the rock since the reign of King David 1 in the 12th Century and continued to be a royal residence until 1633. As the castle’s residential role declined it was then principally used as a military barracks with a large garrison. That role has remained until today although with a considerably reduced but still important military presence.
Because of its historical position as Scotland’s most important stronghold it has been closely involved with many ancient conflicts from the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 13rd and 14th Century to the Jacobite Rebellions of 1715 and 1745.
Research undertaken in the last decade identified 25 sieges throughout the castle’s long 1100 year history giving it the title of ‘the most besieged castle in Britain!’
