Looking along Princes Street

This view looks to the east along Princes Street towards Calton Hill and the North British Hotel.  On the right is the 'Wave Swinger' fairground ride.

For the Christmas and New Year festivities, 2011, Princes Street has become pedestrianised between Waverley Bridge and South Charlotte Street.
