Christmas Tree on the Mound

The Christmas tree on the Mound has become a centrepiece of the Edinburgh Christmas lights display.  The tree is a gift each year, from Norway.

The buildings in the background are:

-  Church of Scotland's Assembly Halls in Mound Place (with two large towers)

-  Tolbooth St John's Church, now 'The Hub' at the foot of Castle Hill (with tall steeple).

It had been dark for some time when this photo was taken at 5.20pm on December 20, about the shortest day of the year.
