Victoria Street

Posted on Jul 14, 2011

Looking down from the walkway above Victoria Street you get a great view of the way the narrow street curves down from George IV Bridge to cobbled square of the Grassmarket. The brightly painted restaurants, pubs and shops make up a postcard image of Edinburgh’s old town. One sadly my mono sketch doesn’t do justice to.

The street was busy with tourists and awash with sunshine this afternoon.  I think I may of burnt my arm sketching this one 😉

    Ha, yes I mustn’t grumble. It’ll soon be snowing in the capital no doubt. brrrrrr! I love the extremes of weather we get here, usually in the same day. Thanks for the comment.
