Britain from the Air exhibition has arrived in Edinburgh until 20th May 2013

Edinburgh is the latest host venue for Britain from the Air, an outdoor exhibition of more than 100 stunning aerial photographs.

The photos have already arrived on the streets of Edinburgh and are creating quite a buzz.

The free-to-access street gallery will be the perfect way to see Britain from a unique aerial perspective. Combined with a large-scale, walk-on Ordnance Survey map situated in Festival Square, visitors will be able to walk the length and breadth of the British Isles, finding favourite locations and discovering new ones.

Eleven specially selected photographs of striking locations around Edinburgh have also been unveiled as part of the exhibition, which will remain the city until 20th May.

Each photo has an information board explaining the location shot and the photographer.

Exhibition trail

There is a trail you can do that takes in all of the pictures (see below).

The Edinburgh trail includes: Festival Square, West End, Castle Street, Rose Street, St Andrew Square, East Princes Street Gardens, Mound Precinct and the Grassmarket.

It’s really great to see these giant photos dotted around town and the ones of Edinburgh from above are stunning.

There is a PDF copy of the map (opens in new window).
