The Links with some of the trees nearly bare now. The mound is one of Cromwell's raised platforms for artillery from the seige of Leith. The spire in the background is Leith St Andrews at the bottom of Easter Road.
The North Bridge, below is Waverley Station, running in to Waterloo Place and Register House. On the left the Balmoral Hotel, the old North British as was. To the right the old Post Office building with the shadow of the old Scotsman building falling on it.
Looking down Cranston Street while stuck in a traffic queue at the St Mary St and Royal Mile junction. What is left of the "New Prison" and the memorial in the Calton Burial Ground and a glimpse of Waverley Station.
Been up in Ullapool since Friday hence no posts. Weather has turned decidedly wintry with high winds. Snow ploughs on the A9 and the Braemar road closed. The Water of Leith is rising and the local Tony is gathering Autumn.
