The ancient Nor’ Loch is steeped in the history of the city. Centuries ago it sat in front of Market Street at the foot of the Castle rock, now occupied by Princes Street Gardens, and was part of the natural defences of the old town to hinder invaders. Inspired by this historic icon the Nor’ Loft now takes its place in the rich tapestry of Edinburgh.
