Callum Innes 013 copy

Originally designed in 1814, with building work completed in 1819, the Regent Bridge spent much of the next two centuries accumulating layers of dirt and soot, creating a dark and unwelcoming entrance to Calton Road.

Created in 2012, Innes' striking light installation transforms the space into a soaring arch of gently alternating colour, reaching almost 20 metres (65 feet) at its tallest point. It's an experience no photo can truly convey - you'll just need to come and see it for yourself!

The Regent Bridge was commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival and Ingleby. The piece is accessible 24 hours a day and best experienced in darkness.
