Day 55 - Lady Stair's Close

Today’s photo is a shot of Lady Stair’s Close.  There is an area of Edinburgh called the Royal Mile, which is a street that runs from the Castle all the way down to Holyrood Palace and it is the historic centre of the City.  At the side of the main road there are lots of small streets called Closes.  This one leads to a 17th Century Townhouse built in 1622.  At the bottom of the Close there is a lovely square which houses the Writers’ Museum which you can see right in the centre of the frame (the dark sign adjacent to the lamp is a writer sitting at a desk).  The Writers’ Museum commemorates the lives of three Scottish writers: Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Burns.  I have always loved reading and the Writer’s Museum is a fantastic place where hours can seem like minutes (for me anyway).

    If you keep on posting photos of Edinburgh and also these informative descriptions of them, I’ll remain your most faithful follower 🙂

    Strangely, what I remember most from the Writers’ Museum is the closet made by Deacon Brodie… (I think I touched it stealthily, but don’t tell!)

  2. Thank you foe the photos …. and the reminder to go back to Writers’ Museum!
