Sciennes Jewish Burial Ground

Established in 1816 this hidden away small plot of land was once the only Jewish burial ground in Scotland.

I pass by here often on the way to sketch stockist Art & Craft Collective on Causewayside, and have often peered through the railings and seen the strong sunshine lighting up the deteriorated headstones.

This time though I stopped to scribble the scene and try and capture that light on this scared place, which hasn’t been used for a burial since 1867.

Signed and mounted prints of this sketch can be purchased on my Etsy shop HERE.
