Looking At Edinburgh

Cafe overlooking Gardens

The terrace cafe overlooking Princes Street Gardens

So much of Edinburgh is underground, in cellars and tunnels. This cafe was built in the underground complex that linked the National Gallery and the Royal Scottish Academy -what is now called the Weston Link. (More here.) The cafe is underneath the Mound and looks over Princes Street Gardens towards Waverley Station.

Morningside Gallery

window and reflections

Morningside Gallery reflects Morningside Road. The gallery claims to “showcase original paintings and limited editions by some of Scotland’s best known painters alongside the work of promising young Scottish artists” … and the art is obscured by the glass reflecting the houses opposite more perfectly than any painting.
