Ross Fountain - Photo by Guido Strotheide

Located at the heart of Edinburgh city in the beautiful setting of Princes Street Gardens is the Ross Fountain. Sculpted by artist Jean-Baptiste Jules Klagmann, this fountain has been made from cast iron, a shining example of 19th-century sculpture. The base of the fountain is decorated with mermaids, walrus and lion heads and cherubs. While the top features four female figures representing science, arts, poetry and industry. Plus the fountain sits scenically under Edinburgh Castle creating amazing shooting angles. (Edinburugh, Scotland)
