Edinburgh Lumen

You’d better move fast if you want to see the Edinburgh Lumen display, as it only runs until tomorrow, Sunday 11 March 2018. There is no entry fee.

There are three light installations around Edinburgh city centre. But I only had time to visit two, as I wanted to catch the last train back home to Stirling before the start of the dreaded evening bus replacement service.

The Ocean Of Light on the Mound was beautiful. It is nine metres square, consisting of 12,000 suspended light bulbs and you can walk through it.

The displays start at 5pm and end at 10.30pm.

I’d recommend that you visit after 6.30pm, once it’s dark. I walked past the Ocean of Light around 5.20pm, on my way to the Drawing Room at the RSA. As you can see from the photos below, the display didn’t looked great in the daylight.

The other installation which I saw was Serenity Gardens in St Andrew Square.
