Fleshmarket Close

Cockburn Street to Market Street

Fleshmarket Close leads from Market Street, up the hill, to the top of Cockburn Street.

The close was named after the meat market that was based in Market Street, at the foot of the close.

The photograph above looks up the close as it approaches Cockburn Street.
