WhereArtI Edinburgh?

Posted on Jun 1, 2020
Where is this?

Monday 1st June

Can you tell me where I have sketched?

A little late today but I bet many of you recognise this Edinburgh landmark… even if you aren’t commuting past it every day just now.

Leave your answer in the comment box below. Your comment will not show up until I reveal the answer, which I will do before the end of the day.

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

The prize for June is a screen printed tea towel featuring my Victoria Street illustration.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is teatowelwai.jpg

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 before the end of the day.

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 an Edinburgh Sketcher tea towel you can find all 4 designs in my Etsy shop.

    Hi David, I remember climbing the steps to enter the museum too, such a shame they didn’t keep both entrances as the wonder of the inside was all the more special after running up those steps! As for a nearby chippy the family and I like to go to the red cafe, the City Restaurant after a trip to the museum 🙂

    In my day buses did not travel down Chambers Street past the museum. This was the entrance to the museum in those times before DDA compliance meant alternatives without stairs had to be found. As it is directly opposite, almost, the Heriot-Watt university main building, the Museum restaurant was a great favourite for Bridie/Scotch Pie with beans and chips and still being young and fit, we could loup up the steps and past the internal fish ponds to indulge.

    (The other favourite place for Pie Chips and Beans was the top floor of the Mountbatten building in the Grassmarket. Now a posh restaurant in an posh hotel.)

    That is the Royal Scottish Academy and the Scottish National Gallery at the foot of The Mound 😊

    It’s the museum on Chambers St!
    In my opinion, the only one everyone knows which one you are talking about by just saying “museum” 😉

    National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street.

    (I remember it looking bigger. Maybe I was smaller then?)
