Waverley Steps is the long flight of steps leading up from
Waverley Railway Station to the East End of Princes Street.
They have a reputation giving visitors a windy start
to their visit to Edinburgh.
Escalators were added to the steps, and
the steps re-opened in January 2012.
There is now more shelter for travellers
coming up the steps from Waverley Station, but they can still
be hit by the wind when they reach the top.
