You get fabulous views from the top of the Mound, in Edinburgh’s city centre. Down the curved road to Princes Street and it’s line of shops and through the gaps to the Firth of Forth, and Fife beyond that. Its a stunning view and one that needs to be savoured, taken-in over time… and I’ve found the perfect place in which to do so.
Cafe Musa sits right at the top of the Mound, in between the Assembly Hall and Wash Bar. This sketch is the view from one of their windows over looking the crowds that now fill the square below to see the Fringe shows performing.Their coffee is delicious, as is their tea, and they also serve a variety of sandwiches, baked potatoes etc to fill you up mid Fringe. Plus a bonus for me, they have gluten free cake 🙂
I cycled from Canonmills up to the Mound yesterday, worth it for a cuppa at Cafe Musa though. The cafe on the Mound is soon to be home to a few ES sketches and cushions !
I sketched this wee one while I cought my breath 🙂
