A Walk around the City Walls

The Walk

In its Centenary Year, 2008, the Old Edinbrugh Club arranged a conducted walk around the walls of the city of Edinburgh. 

This followed the route taken, exactly a hundred years earlier, on a walk organised by the Survey Section of Edinburgh Photographic Society in which members of the the Old Edinburgh Club were invited to participate.

The Photo

This view looks to the north down the Vennel towards Edinburgh Castle.  A photographer for The Times newspaper is photographing Graeme Cruickshank, dressed in green, as he stops in the Vennel during the 2008 walk.  Graeme was the leader of this walk.

Members of the Old Edinburgh Club are in the background.  The club's President is on the extreme left, wearing his new chain of office.
