The bog was in Edinburg, behind the Castle, part of the old Nor Lock, now Princes Street Gardens. Ninewells is in the Scottish Borders!


Well that's a fun piece of information! However I no longer have access to the original quotation; maybe it did mention that the bog was in Edinburgh. I suppose it's not a bog any more? Maybe the writer just assumed it was in Hume's native place.
