Photo Friday: Edinburgh, The Grange

This gorgeous photo above is of Thirlestane Lane, one of the immaculate and beautiful alleyways in the southside of Edinburgh, a neighbourhood called The Grange.  Just south of The Meadows and sloping downhill to the foot of Blackford Hill, the Grange has long been known as the it neighbourhood of Edinburgh, home to the rich and famous.  Or should I say, infamous, as local ‘celebrities’ such as Sir Fred Goodwin.

The Grange used to be a single home – known as ‘The Grange House’ – a mansion house built in the 13th century which once would have been mostly a swamp pit.

I highly encourage you to pop by for a stroll on your next visit – it’s the perfect place on a sunny afternoon, either after a brunch in the old town, or after a morning hike up onto Blackford Hill.
