I was standing in the cordoned off section in the middle of the road in front of Rutland Place looking towards the busy intersection at the west End of Edinburgh when I took this shot.
On the left is Frasers Department Store on the corner of Hope Street and Princes Street. The clock above the corner is really interesting and features a kilted Pipe Band marching round the base of the clock.
In the centre of the shot is St. John’s Church at the corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road.
Behind St. John’s Church, you can see the clock tower and spire of St. Cuthbert’s Church just off Lothian Road.
Behind St. Cuthbert’s Church you can see part of Edinburgh castle. Edinburgh Castle dominates the city of Edinburgh like no other castle in Scotland, and Edinburgh Castle is unequalled in the whole of the British Isles. Over one thousand years of history sit on top of the famous Edinburgh rock.
The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
