A stunning street in Edinburgh’s Old Town

Victoria Street, so iconic to Edinburgh. Its cobbles, curved lines, wee galleries and eateries making it a must see place and a favourite picture postcard to send home for many a visitor to the city.

I have been meaning to draw the street for a while but couldn’t decide which angle, the view down from the top is just as stunning. I sketched a lose view from the top a couple of years ago, the link is below so you can see. The busy thoroughfare runs down from the George IV Bridge to the Grassmarket and is the main route from The Royal Mile to the historic market square.
