PHOTOWALK- A sunny February Sunday in Edinburgh


With bright blue skies in Edinburgh today, I decided to make the most of the gorgeous weather and went for an early morning walk.

Parking outside the Botanics (free on Sundays) I headed through Inverleith Park, Stockbridge, Canonmills and back through the east gate of the Botanics.

Growing up in Stockbridge, I love to return and visit all my favourite places.I had also been requested by a family member to photograph San Marco’s frontage before it was changed.

I’d like to personally thank Franco, Nino and the San Marco family for numerous meals at San Marco over the years, endless fish suppers from Franco’s and of course, many happy meals at Capone’s (for those that remember!)

All the photos were taken with a point and shoot camera and are unedited.

All that remains of San Marco, the frontage. Soon to be a gastro pub.

Although shut on Sundays, George Bower is a Stockbridge institution!

The ‘GirCo’ pop-up shop at 35 Raeburn Place is now permanently staying open. This shot taken through the window.

The whole photowalk took around 90 minutes, but you could do it much faster or linger in the sun longer.

I popped back out in the sun in the afternoon and captured this sunset from Granton Harbour. More days like this please Edinburgh!
