The National Museum of Scotland is located on Chambers Street between W College Street and King George IV Bridge. From its Roof Terrace you can obtain a terrific 360 degree view of the city of Edinburgh. This first photo is looking north to the Royal Mile and St Giles’ Cathedral.

For this past week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge I submitted a monochrome version (see here) the other day of the northwest view from the museum of Edinburgh Castle and the Hub. Here’s the color version:
Here’s the view looking northeast to Calton Hill and its many monuments:
Holyrood Park’s Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat dominate the east view from the roof.
The south view is mostly of the University of Edinburgh main campus. There was a lot of glare in the color version of this photo; so I converted it to monochrome using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
Looking west beyond the buildings directly across the street from the museum you get a glimpse of Greyfriars Kirk and its adjacent cemetery.
In this shot I got both the Greyfriars Kirk and Edinburgh Castle:
For this final shot the view is of the southwest with Alpine cinquefoil in the foreground.
In my next posting we will go inside the museum.
