Not everything on the Royal Mile is old or historic. The memorial to Adam Smith is very new. I had a new edition of the DK Travel Guide and it is not mentioned in there. I did some Google searching and found that the memorial was dedicated in July 2008. Adam Smith was the auther of "The Wealth of Nations" published in 1776.

Address: Parliament Square outside St. Giles' Cathedral
Directions: Near the Mercat Cross
