Near the entrance of Edinburgh Castle, to the right on the stone wall of the moat (just before you enter the Castle grounds from the large outside courtyard), there is a plaque. This plaque has the shield of Nova Scotia in the upper left corner, and it reads:

Sir William Alexander of Menstrie
Earl of Stirling, received sasine,
or lawful possession of the royal
province of Nova Scotia by (in) the
ancient and symbolic ceremony of
delivery of earth and stone from
Castlehill by a representative of the king.
Here also (1625-1637) the Scottish Baronets of Nova
Scotia received sasine of their distant baronies.

-- presented by the Province of Nova Scotia
