Day 2: Edinburgh – Leith & Cramond

Love Travelling Blog

We began the day with a walk around some of the buildings of the University of Edinburgh starting at the Old College quad located on South Bridge.  It was an overcast morning but the sight of the historic buildings housing the School of Law and the Talbot Rice Gallery surrounding the quad lifted our spirits.

From there, we continued on to the main campus where we admired the elegant McEwan Hall in Bristo Square.  It’s a magnificent ceremonial hall and we have fond memories of attending a family graduation ceremony there not so long ago.  At right angles to the hall stands another fine building, that of Teviot Row House which is the oldest student union building in the world, having been open since 1889.
