A Walk around the City Walls

The Walk

In its Centenary Year, 2008, the Old Edinbrugh Club arranged a conducted walk around the walls of the city of Edinburgh. 

This followed the route taken, exactly a hundred years earlier, on a walk organised by the Survey Section of Edinburgh Photographic Society in which members of the the Old Edinburgh Club were invited to participate.

The Photo

Graeme Cruickshank tells more about the city walls, as the group of Old Edinburgh Club members pause in front of George Heriot's school on their way between the Vennel and Greyfriars' Kirkyard.
