Title
Edinburgh Castle from Greyfriar's Churchyard
Description
Edinburgh Castle towers over the monuments of Greyfriar's Churchyard. Many gravestones and crypts can be seen in the foreground and a wall around the burial ground has an arched entrance way through which two figures are passing. A lone tree stands in the cemetery. On a rocky outcrop beyond stands Edinburgh Castle. The fortification has crenulated walls, watchtowers, garderobes and gun loops. The arched entrance way to the castle has a wooden fence running in front of it. Figures stand on the hilly incline in front of the fence.
