9- Ross Fountain
Sculpted by artist Jean-Baptiste Jules Klagmann, this fountain has been made from cast-iron, and is a shining example of 19th century sculpture.
If you take a closer look at the base of the fountain, there are mermaids, walrus and lion heads and cherubs. At the top, four female figures represent science, arts, poetry and industry. Visitors like to take photos up close, or from further back to get Edinburgh Castle in the background.
Beautiful in the day, but also spectacular at night, Ross Fountain is definitely one to add to your must-see locations in Edinburgh. You can reach Ross Fountain in Princes Street Gardens in 5-minutes on foot from Fraser Suites Edinburgh.
8- Victoria Street
A curving ribbon of cascading cobblestones punctuated with coloured buildings make Victoria Street one of Edinburgh’s prettiest terraces. As it curves down a hill, it makes for quite the unique photograph with an interesting perspective.
For a better shot, but a shot that’s less well known, take the staircase up to the second level.
7- Princes Suite
Room with an instagrammable view? It has to be our very own Princes Suite, offering panoramic views of the Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street and if you are lucky, you can even spot the Firth of Forth coastal estuary on a sunny day. There are photo ops inside the suite, too. Windows are adorned with historical stained glass and the open plan living area has stunning classical design features, perfect for photo backdrops.
