These pictures were taken while walking through Edinburgh before taking the tour of The Real Mary King's Close. If you like strange and spooky, this is one walk not to miss.
Edinburgh is a city that in its earliest history was built on a mountain with another city built over it. The result are these steep Wynds and Closes that connect one part of the city to another. The most spectacular is The Castle Wynd Steps that climb a steep incline to the top of Castle Hill and the entrance of the Castle Esplanade. With a total of 187 steps split in two half way up by a terrace, it is a steep shortcut for the healthy.
