The Balmoral Clock

I read in yesterday’s Telegraph about the Balmoral Clock above the Balmoral Hotel in Princes Street in Edinburgh. I know the Balmoral Clock very well as we used to live in Edinburgh. My office was very near Princes Street so I was there at least a few times a week. The Mhinisteir and I used to depend on the clock for accuracy whenever we went that way. I learnt through the article that the Balmoral Clock runs three minutes ahead of time to help people catch their trains on time at Waverley Station! It has been that way for the last 118 years!
