Artist's Description

Taken during the Edinburgh, Scotland RB meet (13 Nov 2010).

Hidden away among the jumble of buildings in the Cowgate are some wonderful old buildings, two of them are shown here.

The square castellated tower with the small spire on top is the tower of the Magadalen Chapel. Built in 1541, Magadalen Chapel also served as a guildhall for the Incorporation of Hammermen. Special features include intact medieval stained glass windows dating from 1550 (the oldest in Scotland) and also detailed arcading dating from 1555. The chapel is now the headquarters of the Scottish Reformation Society.

The Magadalen Chapel is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (No 27110).

Behind the chapel is the impressive tower of the Edinburgh Central Library, built between 1887-90 it is the only Carnegie library in Scotland’s capital city.

The Edinburgh Central Library is an Historic Scotland Category B Listed Building (No 27587).

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”).

This area is part of the lower level of Edinburgh’s Old Town, which is partly built around the elevated streets of South Bridge and George IV Bridge.

The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
