Mercat cross

As in many other enclaves of Scotland, Mercat Cross marks the medieval mall. The top of the monument, showing the figure of a unicorn (known locally as "The Puggy"), is a recurring symbol of Scotland against the famous English Lion, which represents freedom and, at the same time, danger (this is considered a mythological animal). In this square, village festivals and rallies were held, including riots and demonstrations. The most famous was in December of 1706 where there was a popular revolt against the Act of Union (formation of what we now know as the UK or Britain).
