Victoria Terrace

This view looks along Victoria Terrace, an elevated terrace above Victoria Street.

Victoria Street leads up the hill from the Grassmarket to meet George IV Bridge beside Edinburgh Public Library, and the National Library of Scotland .

The building at the end  where Victoria Terrace passes under the arches was, unfortunately, demolished in 1968 to make way for Lothian Regional Council Headquarters
