Built in the 18th century, Victoria Street is one of the easiest streets to identify in Edinburgh because of its colourful facades. Above it there’s Victoria Terrace, full of pubs and open-air cafes, and which is also used regularly by BBC Scotland as a backdrop for interviews!
When I visited Scotland, over 7 years ago now, I must admit I was more captivated by Glasgow than Edinburgh. I think my love for the Glaswegian bands Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura and Franz Ferdinand may have contributed to this… What I certainly would have never guessed 7 years ago is that I’d be making a Victoria Street bowl!
