WhereArtI 055

WAI55Good morning Edinburgh lovers, yes the WhereArtI quiz is back after a month away and to celebrate I have a fantastic prize for the first person who can tell me where I sketched the drawing above. A family ticket for one of Lothian Buses superb City Bus Tours which run around Edinburgh highlighting some of the must see sights and attractions, and telling the stories behind some of Edinburgh’s most famous buildings.

In fact if you jump on one of the Edinburgh City our buses today you’ll be sure to pass the sketch location yourself 😉 Good luck!

The rules are simple, each week I sketch a mystery location within Edinburgh, all you have to do is tell me where I am. Can you place the sketch?

Remember to include the hashtag #wherearti with your answers either below, on facebook or twitter and also to keep an eye on the ES facebook page and twitter for clues throughout the day.

Answers to come by this time tomorrow, and although for now the quiz is just for fun the first three correct answers will get a mention plus a link from my site for anyone who makes it onto the WhereArtI leader board.

  1. A tough one today for sure, and one that had many of you confused. Well done to anyone who said that this sketch is the city’s coat of arms, and especially well done if you said it is on the Bow Well, in the Grassmarket.

    The Bow Well is one of many well heads around the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, and was designed by Robert Milne and built in 1681.

    The sketch is from the South side where below the coat of arms is a drinking fountain, which is no longer in use. The line above is the city’s motto, which reads ‘Nisa Dominus Frustra’ which translated is ‘Without God everything fails’.

    Well done to David Gedded on facebook who gave me the correct answer first and who wins the family ticket for one of Edinburgh’s City Bus Tours, thanks to LothianBuses.

    David also gets 3 points on the WhereArti leaderboard. @aimzobi came in second for 2 points and @elfahy grabbed a point for third.

    Thanks for all the RTs on twitter and for playing along and if anyone would like to donate a prize for a future #WhereArtI then please get in touch with me at contact@edinburghsketcher.com
