The Clock Tower of the Balmoral, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom
The Balmoral is an iconic landmark in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is located in the heart of the city at the east end of Princes Street, the main shopping street beneath the Edinburgh Castle rock, and the southern edge of the New Town. The tower has dominated the city skyline and affectionately named the grand old lady of Princes Street. Since 1902, the Balmoral clock has been set three minutes fast to ensure that the people of Edinburgh wouldn't miss their trains. The only day that the clock runs on time is on 31 December (Hogmanay) for the city's New Year celebrations. The clock tower, at 190 feet (58 m) high, forms a prominent landmark in Edinburgh's city centre
