An outstanding tribute to the creative genius that was Eduardo Paolozzi in the heart of Leith. Shame there's a bus shelter right in front of it!

The city is packed with dazzling street art which lockdown has finally allowed us to appreciate.

With pavements empty and traffic light, we have had all the time needed to discover the gems which have been hiding in plain sight.

Leith is a melting pot of creativity – and one that constantly changes – but you will find street art across the city; from tunnels to busy roads, from giant doorways to utility company boxes, from creativbty businesses to talented creatives.

Here’s our guide to the some of the gems we’ve found during lockdown.

But there are many, many more – so, share photos of your favourites with us for another gallery of great Edinburgh street art. Email hi-res images to us at [email protected]
