Bridges in Spylaw Park


I took this photo on Monday as we walked through Spylaw Park, which used to be the grounds of Spylaw House, now a nice little park in Colinton, Edinburgh. The railings in the photo belong to the low level pedestrian bridge across the Water of Leith, the big stone bridge is Spylaw Bridge that runs through Colinton.



also along the Water of Leith is the beautiful St Bernard's Well, and you can see some of my photos of that over on my Over Forty Shades blog here.

As ever, red text in this post takes you to other webpages where you can find out more!

what a wonderful stone bridge. we don't have anything that grand here. we do have some natural bridges though that were formed from the weather. maybe i'll post some photos one day. have a great day.

Juliet, I love the stonework. The craftsmanship is amazing - the columns taper as they rise. Gorgeous.

Wonderful old arches!

I always wonder how people get to be so rich.

So it is now opened to the public?

Here we have an old farm house, Alberton, the grounds are opened to the public,

Thanks for visiting.

A few years ago I was in Edinburgh, had I known that it was so wonderful to walk outside Edinburgh, I would have been there. Though Edinburgh itself is interesting enough, of course.

Your country is so beautiful it almost hurts my eyes. The stone! I really love the stone.
