Bakehouse Close Edinburgh

Earlier this year Outlander was filming in Edinburgh in Bakehouse Close just off the Royal Mile. I didn’t manage to visit when the crew were in town but a few weeks after they left I visited the close.

I believe the close was used for the print makers fire.

Today Bakehouse Close in the Canongate is perhaps the best preserved Old Town close, and a visit here gives a good impression of what living in the old city must have been like.From a legal document of 1762 we know the complete mixture of people who used to live here, including Lord Adam Gordon; David Doig, merchant; William Dunbar, weaver and Ewen, a letter carrier.
