Princes Street Gardens
The grounds of Princes Street Gardens stretch to the foot of Castle Rock, to the West End of the city and eastwards to Waverley Station. Dissected by the Mound, which houses the Royal Scottish Academy and the National Gallery of Scotland, they make a wonderful green spot in the valley between the Old and New Town. Permanently saved from commercial development by an Act of Parliament in 1816, the park was completed in 1830 after the Nor' Loch was drained. Today it is a favorite area for a stroll and a verdant short-cut to the Castle.
