The Edinburgh Wheel

The Edinburgh Wheel, beside The Scott Monument in East Princes Street Gardens was one of the attractions for Edinburgh's Christmas and New Year celebrations in 2011.

There were also several other fairground rides and an ice skating rink in East Princes Street Gardens.

Some of the illuminated trees in Princes Street Gardens can be seen in the background of this photo.
