View to the SE from

The Scott Monument

Looking towards Arthur's Seat

Here are two images, both made from the same  photo.  The photo was taken from The Scott Monument in East Princes Street Gardens, in August 2009, looking south towards Edinburgh Old Town. 

-   One of the pinnacles of the Scott Monument can be seen in the lower-left corner of the photo.

-  Behind the pinnacle is North Bridge, the main road leading to the south from the East End of Princes Street

-  The hill in the upper left corner of the photo is Arthur's Seat, the 823 ft extinct volcano in Holyrood Park.

-  Moving to the right along the skyline from Arthur's Seat, we see:

-  the spire of the Tron Kirk at the junction of the Royal Mile and South Bridge

-  the 'crown steeple' of St Giles Church, in the High Street, part of the Royal Mile.

-  the dome of the former Head Office of Bank of Scotland at the top of The Mound.

Most of the foreground of the photo is a view looking down on the newly refurbished roof of Edinburgh Waverley railway station.
