Arboretum Place

Looking down to the Castle from the entrance to Inverleith Park opposite the Botanics main gate. The Botanics and Park are handy for enjoying this unseasonal warm and sunny weather.

All Wrapped Up

Pretty in Pink. As if some relation of Christo has been let loose in the Botanics. It is in support of the Moonwalk.

Art Council Style

This is the entrance to Edinburgh Council's administrative headquarters by the Waverley Station. I have no idea of the title of the work. Maybe it should be a competition.

The New Town

Sticking with curving facades this is a "rear" view of the New Town perched high above the Dean Gorge and photographed from the Dean Bridge, (built in 1833 by Thomas Telford), which spans the gorge cut by the Water of Leith. On the right, the back of Randolph Place, central would be Ainslie Place and the small section on the left, Moray Place.

Cycleway, Trinity

Edinburgh has an extensive network of cycleways which use the routes of the old railway lines.  This one running through Trinity and on to the city centre.

This was an old school in Henderson St in Leith.  Converted twice, originally to workshop spaces and then to flats.

Platform 9

Flood Works

Work on the flood defences for the Water of Leith continues. They have narrowed the flow considerably by the Newhaven Road bridge and the venturi effect results in a suddenly quicker flow.
