WhereArtI Edinburgh?

Posted on Oct 14, 2019

Can you tell me where I have sketched?

I see this rocket shaped building rising from the trees each week when taking my boy to his music lesson, but can you name the street I am travelling along.

Leave your answer in the comment box below. Your comment will not show up until I reveal the answer tomorrow.

I will pick a random winner from all correct entries on Tuesday morning, and they will go on to the ‘Winners wall’ for the month. At the end of the month one of those on the wall will be picked to receive a prize.

Well done Cheryl Carroll, who won September’s prize of a Leith tea towel. The prize for November is canvas tote featuring my Edinburgh Castle sketch. These tough shoulder bags are no longer available to buy in the shops and are very sought after items!

Your comment will not show up until the winner is announced. Keep an eye on my facebook and twitter feeds for clues if they are needed later today, and I will pick a winner for the Winners Wall tomorrow afternoon.

I hope you join us to play along and keep looking up and noticing the beauty in the everyday, you never know where I will be sketching next!

If you would like to buy one of my Edinburgh tea towels you can find them in my Etsy shop.

    Hi! The far building is the Edinburgh Uni Medical School and the cone towers are the Old Royal Infirmary but is now the building site for the new building for the Edinburgh Futures Institute! I walk down Lauriston Place past the EFI site every day and into the Med school so if you ever release this as a print please let me know as I’d love to have one or two!

    Old Royal Infirmary on the right so it must be Lauriston Place leading into Teviot Place.

    As a former pupil of George Heriot’s, I should be familiar with this street. Most schooldays, I would run along Lauriston Place towards Teviot Place to catch the number 27 bus in Forrest Road.
    The towers are part of the infirmary built on the site of the original Watson’s school.

    You are therefore in Lauriston Place.

    I think you are on Lauriston Place looking towards Teviot Place. You’ve (beautifully) captured Rowand Anderson’s former Medical Faculty for Edinburgh University. He won a competition to design it in 1875 and it was completed in 1876.

    You’re on Lauriston Place, looking at the medical school on Middle Meadow Walk.
