The velvet silence broken by a series of shrill ringing bells in the signal box, a flurry of activity; levers are pulled, wires sing, signals drop, and silence returns.

Edinburgh History Tour

Paperback
by Hanson, Liz
The profile of Edinburgh was born of a marriage between nature's sculpture and man's architecture. The epicentre is Castle Rock - a volcanic plug - which constantly draws the eye from all parts of the city. Sloping down from it is a jagged outline of impossibly high medieval tenements lining the Royal Mile, which is punctuated at the foot of the tail of glacial debris by Holyrood Palace. That Edinburgh is b...
