Doorway of the Covenanter Hotel, High Street
The quotation above the doorway comes from John Galt's novel about the Covenanters, 'Ringan Gilhaize' [pron. Gillies], which features the Pentland Rising of 1666. The dates signify the half century of conflict and persecution between the signing of the National Covenant of 1638 and the 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688.

"We could not stop at what we had done; we called on those who had been brought to thresh the corn to join with us, and they joined; we hastened to the next farm; the spirit of indignation was there before us, and master and man, and father and son, there likewise found that the hilts of their fathers' covenanted swords fitted their avenging grasps. We had now fired the dry stubble of the land the flame spread we advanced, and grew stronger and stronger. The hills, as it were, clapped their hands, and the valleys shouted of freedom. From all sides men and horse came exulting towards us; the gentleman and the hind knew no distinction. The cry was, "Down with tyranny we are and we will make free!"" -- John Galt, Ringan Gilhaize, 1823
