Candlemaker Row

Candlemakers, Woodworkers, Clothing Designers & Makers, Fine Food Creaters and the Crafts beers are here too…

Ah that was quite a mouthful just like the world class food on offer in what some folks call “The Back Alley.”

Louise Rayner Captures Candlemaker Row in 1860

So here we have one of Louise’s views from the short but steep Candlemaker Row to show how the castle dominates the city. The painting is called View of the Half Moon Battery of Edinburgh Castle from Candlemaker Row and the name refers, of course, to the curved gun platform at this end of the castle. The road out to the Royal Mile is just to the right of the battery but at a lower level, putting it out of our sight from here
