Off the high street in Old Aberdeen,
there is a small walled garden
with two benches, a shallow (sometimes empty) pond, a sundial
and an unusual mosaic.
It is a tranquil little place, a nice spot for lunch on a dry day.
The motto below the mosaic, “Non Sibi Sed Patriae”,
“Not for self, but for country”.
The mosaic itself depicts the MacRobert family coat of arms.
There is a nice article about the history of the memorial garden
(and more) in Walking with History (PDF) from the University of Aberdeen.
