Edinburgh from Salisbury Crags

Here is an attractive wood engraving of Edinburgh from Salisbury Crags in Holyrood Park  by W Linton, after a sketch by H Smith, c.1820,  with later hand colouring

UPPER LEFT:        Edinburgh Castle

CENTRE LEFT:      The Royal Mile

LOWER LEFT:       Salisbury Crags in Holyrood Park

UPPER CENTRE:   The old North Bridge and Calton Jail

LOWER CENTRE:  Holyrood Palace and Trinity Church

UPPER RIGHT:     Nelson Monument & National Monument on Calton Hill

Trinity Church was removed to make way for the building of Waverley Station in the 1840s.

There is a large chimney in the centre of the picture, possibly belonging to one of the many Holyrood breweries.  This is in approximately the position where the new Scottish Parliament is now being built.
