…. that Edinburgh used to have its own ‘Loch’? A ten-minute walk away from where we are on Dundas Street today (and where this building has been since the 1840s!) was the Nor Loch. It had to give way to Princes Street Gardens, when these were created during the first half of the 19th century.
If you’d like to learn more about Scotland’s past, projects like ScotlandsPlaces and ScotlandsPeople are reliable resources for you. A visit to the National Archives and the National Library – both located here in the city centre of Edinburgh – will be of great interest for those discovering Scotland’s history.
