Old Photograph Double Decker Passenger Bus Ratho Scotland
Old photograph of a Double Decker passenger bus in Ratho, Edinburgh, Scotland. A Scottish village and parish in the west of Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. The Union Canal passes through the village. Ratho is the site of stone age circles, carved into the rocks. There was also a witches stone, which held many legends. When the stone was moved by the land owner for farming, it was believed evil spirits were released into the village. It is believed that the name Ratho comes from Rathach, Scottish Gaelic, for a place where there is an old fort. Ratho is located close to both the M8 and the M9 motorways. The A8 and A71 run parallel to the North and the South of the village. These are two of the major roads running into Edinburgh. There is a network of paths around Ratho and the surrounding area, and you can also walk or cycle along the canal towpath.
