One of Edinburgh’s traditional festive highlights

THIS WEEK the EdinburghSketcher went Christmas shopping, and dropped into a certain department store to sketch their beautiful tree...

“As much a part of Edinburgh’s Christmas as the big wheel and the helter skelter, the Jenners’ Christmas tree is a festive highlight not to be missed.

The 40 ft tree stands proud in the centre of Edinburgh’s most famous department store, its branches almost brushing the banister of each floor.

I’m so glad that House of Fraser have kept this tradition going for the residents and visitors of Edinburgh, since taking over in 2005.

The sketch is black ink sketched on the day, with digital colour added later.”
