About Camera Obscura

Perched on top of the Royal Mile, Camera Obscura is the place to 'see' Edinburgh - however not necessarily by looking at the views! Instead, visitors look at a white disk in the middle of a darkened room onto which the surrounding area is projected (including all the innocent and oblivious passers-by). There's a voyeuristic air amongst the viewers, as they hover around the images, chuckling as people and things are singled out for scrutiny - all good fun.
