Photos and the City

destination photography & travel

After watching the sun go down behind the Edinburgh Castle I slowly made my way down towards Princes Street, passing cute litte shops, cafés and bars and being greeted by the Scott Monument.

You´ll find the largest monument for a writer right here, next to the Princes Street Garden – for the Scottish author Sir Walter Scott. And it is even possible to go inside and climb up to several viewing platforms, but it was already closed for that day. The view from above must be lovely!

Following Scott´s death a competition was held to design a monument for him, George Meikle Kemp, a self-taught architect, won with his victorian design and the foundation was laid in August 1840 and finished in 1846. Meikle unfortunately drowned on a foggy evening in 1844 in the Union Canal while walking home from the site.

Edinburgh´s oldest department store Jenners.

Princes Street always busy with buses, people shopping and admiring the view of the castle…
