Artist's Description

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 while on my way to meet up with my fellow bubblers on the Sunday outing in Edinburgh.

The Canons’ Gait pub is located on the Canongate near the bottom of the Royal Mile, not far from Holyrood Palace.

David I founded a monastery at Holyrood in 1128 and the road followed by the Canons as they moved between the monastery and the walls of Edinburgh further up the hill became the Canons’ Way or Canons’ Gait (hence the name for this pub).

The building housing the pub is located on the site of Plainstanes Close, so called because it was paved like Canongate itself. In the 1500s Mary, Queen of Scots’ French tailor Jaques de Soulis lived here.

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