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.

Shadows and haar

Filed under: buildings, photos — Tags: , , , , — EdinburghEye @ 8:47 am

Looking down Hanover Street towards the Royal Scottish Academy Building, on a haar-thick winter morning in December: where the shadow falls,the pavements are still wet enough with the water from the air to reflect back the light, but in direct sunlight the moisture evaporates fast and the pavements begin to look dry within minutes. A classic Edinburgh day.
