Artist's Description

The High Street in Kirkliston, an outlying suburb of Edinburgh, Scotland.

A church stood on a knoll overlooking the River Almond here in the 1100s, part of an estate held by the Knights Templar. At the time the settlement around it was known as Temple Liston. Much of the Templar church survives as Kirkliston Parish Church, just as much of the original name of the settlement survives in the later Kirkliston.

It’s not obvious to a modern traveller, but Kirkliston grew up around what for a thousand years was one of the most important roads in Scotland. The main route from Edinburgh to Linlithgow, Falkirk and Stirling was often travelled by Scottish Royalty: and by a succession of invading English armies.

Information from Undiscovered Scotland.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi in the USA)
