I attended the UNVEILING of the SCOTS WAR POETS MEMORIAL in MAKERS COURT , Edinburgh on 23rd November 2018 , and the unveiling of the Memorial stone was by RT HON LORD PROVOST OF THE CITY OF EDINBURGH .

The MEMORIAL in hand crafted CELTIC CROSS in light grey granite with deep carved Celtic knot work, the large base area gives solid stability . The hand carved stone is just over 6 foot tall with a base dimension of 2.5 feet squared.

This is WMR 80151.

It is in Makar's Court, rather than Maker's Court. I found there are courts with both spellings when deriving a post code and 10 figure National Grid Reference.
