Entry Description

The new lighting designed to light the restored Grade A Listed, Ross Fountain in Edinburgh's West Princes Street Gardens utilises low energy, state of the art, waterproof IP68 LED warm white lighting with all spotlights integrated into the fountain structure and submerged within the fountain pools.
As all the lighting is located within the water a beautiful shimmering and pulsing effect is created over the fountain after dark as beams of light project the ripples and waves created by the wind and the splashes of the fountain jets. It is a simple but magical effect.
