Must have walked past this many times over the years, this time I was interested in the Cut Benchmark, simply turn right at the top of Waverley Steps and bingo. Got some funny looks from the 'Big Issue' sellers as I photographed it!

Another intersected station bagged by night. It was very cold and I was struggling comparing the penny-less homeless people with the opulence of the Christmas lights.

Log #189. Impossible to miss as you walk to Waverley, especially when using the north entrance onto Princes St. The clock was around two minutes fast as usual, but I had left plenty of time for the train home anyway. Just missed the fireworks going off at the Gardens by around thirty seconds. Would have liked to have spent more time in town, and done more trigging, but it was just a flying visit for a concert at Studio 24. [ExP-154/MiP-4/Rev-2/BM-12/IS-14/Other-3]

Straight off the train at Waverley and into the Balmoral Hotel for a coffee (it's important to treat yourself occasionally!) noting the 190ft bulbous clock tower as we later headed down towards Broughton.

Now the Balmoral Hotel, probably beyond the means of most people arriving by the adjacent railway.

The Balmoral is a large, luxury 5 star hotel close to Waverley Station in the east of Edinburgh New Town. The North British Hotel opened in 1902 to serve the adjacent station. It is a Category B listed building in a Category A listed group, whatever that means. It is inside Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site. To assist passengers in reaching their train on time, the hotel tower's clock, visible from a considerable distance away, is traditionally set to be two minutes fast.

My photograph from Calton Hill is used as the log reference but as I had arrived by train and walked past the hotel the previous day, I think its use is justified. I feel bad that I have pre-dated locals, but I'm sure someone will fix that.

View from Calton Hill As well as the clock tower, several other intersections are probably in view.
