„Advocate's Close“

from the gallery of David Pringle

The Old Town of Edinburgh, Scotland, consisted originally of the main street, now known as the Royal Mile, and the small alleyways and courtyards that led off it to the north and south. Advocate’s Close is believed to date from 1544 and runs from the Royal Mile down to Cockburn Street. It takes its name from Sir James Stewart of Goodtrees, the last Advocate of Scotland in office during the time of the Restoration, Revolution and Union.
