The Scott Wilson Memorial Sculpture in Glen Prosen

The Scott Wilson Memorial Sculpture in Glen Prosen was unveiled in 2012 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole led by Captain Rober Falcon Scott. Dr Edward Adrian Wilson was the expedition’s chief scientist and surgeon, as well as being an artist.

It’s believed that Scott and Wilson met up several times at Burnside Lodge in Glen Prosen to plan their forthcoming trip. The original memorial fountain, known as ‘Scott’s View’, was knocked down in a car crash in 1979.
