View of the New Town and Fife from Edinburgh Castle
"On the north side of the city lies the new town, which is planned with great judgment, and will prove a magnificent addition to Edinburgh; the houses in St. Andrew's square cost from 1800 to 2000 each, and one or two 4000 or 5000. They are all built in the modern style, and are free from the inconveniences attending the old city." -- Thomas Pennant, A Tour In Scotland 1769
