Angus: Big Bad Bronze Scotsman

The Angry Scotsman is worth a stop. The guy is massive!

[Stacy, 11/05/2014]

The "Fighting Scot" is 12 and a half tons of take-no-prisoners bronze.

Angus the Scotsman Statue

Originally the statue was wearing his kilt "true Scotsman." Unfortunately, before the statue was shipped to the U.S., the fairly large male genitalia originally under the kilt had to be surgically removed. If you are daring enough to look, you can see a soldered plate.

[EUP Highlander, 06/05/2014]

The official Edinboro University history of the statue says that it was cast in nearby Meadville, PA, not overseas -- so the Angus castration story may be just an urban legend to get students to peek up his kilt.

One of the most terrifying and massive school mascots out there, Angus the Scotsman -- of Pennsylvania's Edinboro University -- weighs over 12 tons. His gleaming sword is seven feet long, but his sculptors tactfully arranged his flapping kilt for modesty.
