Chessel's Court

This is one of the doors in Chessel's Court, a lovely 18th century courtyard in the middle of the city that you reach through a set of modern arches on the Canongate part of the Royal Mile. Well worth a visit if you're looking for some idyllic photographs. More to follow; as promised I will take you on the second part of the Royal Mile tour before too long!

This reminds me so much of the colors of the American southwest. There are many places where older homes exist that are painted these gorgeous sunset-like colors. Simply beautiful.

This stair used to be No.4 then upon renovations which incorporated Pirries Close into Chessels it became No2. I lived in a room and kitchen on the top flat. Left there in 1950 but loved my childhood there. There used to be nine families lived in that stair in the late 40's and 50's. I then moved into a bigger flat round at No. 14 which I think is now No 6
