Over the years, Edinburgh has been blessed with all kinds of weather: sun, snow, rain, mist – sometimes all at the same time! No matter what, St Giles’ crown spire always looks picture perfect. We have pulled together a few of our favourite photos to showcase the spire in all it’s glory. Built in the reign of James IV on top of the existing tower, the spire has become an iconic piece of the Edinburgh skyline no matter where you are in the city.
