View to the east from

The Scott Monument

Looking to the east along Princes Street

This photo was taken from The Scott Monument in August 2009.  It looks along Princes Street then Waterloo Place towards the monuments on Calton Hill.

The large hotel in the foreground is The Balmoral, originally the North British Railway Hotel.

In front of the hotel is the roof of Princes Mall shopping centre, formerly Waverley Market.

To the right of the hotel is one of the spans of North Bridge, built 1896-97.

Beyond the span of the North Bridge, the Holyrood area of Edinburgh can be seen, with the lower slopes of Arthur's Seat, the Firth of Forth and the coast of East Lothian beyond.
