Remove the Duke of Sutherland Statue on Ben Bhraggie, Golspie, Scotland.

This petition had 4,885 supporters


The Duke of Sutherland evicted thousands of people from their ancestral lands and had this monstrosity erected in honour of himself. It is a disgusting embarrassment which glorifies some of the worst atrocities committed within Scotland . I want to petition the Scottish Parliament to open a discussion about it's removal and , if there is public consent, to erect a statue of a more worthy person. My own preference would be something honouring Edward Dwelly who worked tirelessly to create a beautiful dictionary of the Gaelic language. It is surely time to address this carbuncle on the face of the Scottish Highlands.
