This is an enlargement from a view looking to the east along Princes Street.

The Balmoral Hotel was formerly the North British Hotel, and originally the North British Railway Hotel.  By tradition, the clock on the hotel is set 3 minutes ahead of the true time to encourage passengers to reach their trains early.

The monuments on Calton Hill can be seen in the background.

The photograph was taken from upstairs on a No 10 bus, as it passed the Scott Monument in Princes Street on a fine day in March 2006.
