Tour Scotland Video Bagpiper The Mound Edinburgh
Tour Scotland video of bagpiper John MacDonald playing on The Mound on ancestry visit to the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. The construction of the Earthen Mound, as it was originally called, was begun in 1781 and it was extended over the years until by 1830 it was macadamised and landscaped so that it appeared more or less complete. When the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway was extended to Waverley in 1846, tunnels were driven under The Mound to allow access to the west.
