King's Stables Road lies beneath Edinburgh Castle, and to the west of Princes Street Gardens.

In this photo, we look down from Castle Terrace car park on the western end of King's Stables Road.  Gravestones in St Cuthbert's graveyard can be seen in the background.

King's Stables Road is where the horses were re-united with their trailers following the Riding of the Marches.
