Westland Cottages

The location of the photo at the top of this page was not known when I added the photo to the web site, but Jimmy Cunningham of Gracemount, Edinburgh provided the answer:

Westfield Cottages, Ravenscroft Street, Gilmerton

I took the second photo above of the street this afternoon.  Both photos look to the west towards the cottages.  I found it unusual to find a row of houses in Edinburgh with no parked cars outside them!

Here are a few more photos of the cottages that I also took this afternoon.
