Towering over the buildings is the tall black Gothic spire of The Hub – the highest point in central Edinburgh, now the home of the Edinburgh International Festival, and a central source of information on all the Edinburgh Festivals.
The name, Cowgate is derived from the fact that cows were herded down it for Edinburgh’s market days in previous centuries (gate being a Scots term for “street”).
The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
