Five Historic Scotland Category A Listed Buildings

Taken during our latest Scottish Bubblemeet to Fife (Saturday 19th March 2011) and Edinburgh (Sunday 20th March 2011).

I took this shot in the morning from Jeffrey Street while on my way to meet up with my fellow bubblers on the Sunday outing in Edinburgh.

An Electric (EWS (English Welsh & Scottish) class 90029) and a Scotrail Diesel Commuter Train sitting just outside the east entrance to Waverley Railway Station.

Above the trains on Calton Hill are a number of Edinburgh’s most famous structures.

From the left:

  1. The Governor’s House
  2. Dugald Stewart Monument
  3. Old Observatory House
  4. Nelson’s Monument
  5. On the side of Calton Hill on Regent Road is St Andrew’s House
