Old Edinburgh Royal Infirmary
Another exceedingly depressing day, weather wise! I took this photo a few weeks ago; these stunning buildings are part of the old Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, built in the 1870s off Laurison Place. If you look closely though, you will see that the windows are boarded up. This is because the hospital relocated to a brand new building in Little France, just south of Edinburgh, about three years ago. The Old Infirmary buildings are now part of a much larger redevelopment of the area called Quartermile, which includes very modern office blocks and flats among the traditional buildings. Some people hate it, but I quite like it!
