1891 Map

Royal Mile West

Edinburgh's Royal Mile extends down the ridge of the Old Town, from Edinburgh Castle in the west to Holyrood Palace in the east.

The map above shows the western section of the Royal Mile  -  Castle Hill, Lawnmarket and High Street.

 Edinburgh Castle is immediately off the picture on the left.

The boundary of the old town of Edinburgh at Netherbow where the city gates once stood, is in the top-right corner of this map, marked Netherbow Port.

 

The names of many of the old closes off running down the slopes to the north and south of the Royal Mile can be read on the large map.

Here is a map of the eastern end of the Royal Mile as it passes through the old town of Canongate.
