"A WEALTH OF STONEWORK" Old Town Tip by BerniShand

Old Town, Edinburgh: 14 reviews and 23 photos

  wonderfully carved
by BerniShand

Take time to admire the wonderful stonework on the buildings, the French influence is very much in evidence, there was so much that reminded us of Paris

this beautiful doorway in the picture is decorated with a carving of Scotlands most famous poet Robert Burns, and is next to a cafe bearing his name along the Royal Mile

its easy to miss little gems like this when the streets are busy and you are heading towards your destination, but looking up above street level can often be very rewarding
another bonus is that it doesnt cost anything !

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
