Shifting views of Edinburgh

“I love this city, and always shall. I write about it. I dream about it. I walk its streets and see something new each day – traces of faded lettering on the stone, still legible, but just; some facade that I have walked past before and not noticed; an unregarded doorway…”

So wrote Alexander McCall Smith, sharing the delights of his adopted city, Edinburgh. I have come to share his admiration of this “city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas”. The changes of height, of weather, of age and history, mean there can be a surprise around any corner, and down any alley.

Here is a small collection of the varied views of the roofs and chimneys of Edinburgh.

  1. So inviting! Edinburgh has been on my bucket list for ages. In wanting care for the environment I am choosing to avoid flying as much as possible, so I don’t think I’ll make it in this lifetime. In the meantime I greatly enjoy your photographs of this old city.
