One of the best parts about the arrival of autumn is watching the leaves change colour! Along with trees changing to their yellow and orange hues, there are a number of buildings in Edinburgh with ivy crawling on its walls that turn a beautiful red during this time of year!
1. Rothesay Place
On the corner of Rothesay Place and Rothesay Mews in the West End of Edinburgh is a beautiful building with ivy crawling all over it. On our visit, a lovely elderly man was standing outside to say hello and have a small chat with us! Needless to say, he must be used to how popular the building is.
2. Carlowrie Castle
Over on the west of Edinburgh right near Edinburgh Airport is Carlowrie Castle, a 19th-century mansion house that has since been converted into a luxury venue for weddings and other celebrations.
3. A-Haven Townhouse Hotel
On the north end of Edinburgh on Newhaven and Ferry Roads is A-Haven Townhouse Hotel, which also wears some stunning ivy.
4. Liberton Kirk
Last but not least on our list is Liberton Kirk, a church on the south side of Edinburgh. It too boasts some very beautiful ivy that turns a deep red in the autumn.
While there are various other buildings around Edinburgh that have ivy on its walls, these were the last intrusive buildings – photograph-wise – we could find (some buildings were in very private settings and didn’t seem appropriate for photographing!).
