Holyrood Park

The stone

I took this photograph on the high ground between where Jeannie Dean's cottage once stood and the St Leonard's entrance to Holyrood Park on January 7, 2008.

I wondered if it might be the 'Slidey Stane', as described in recollections of Holyrood Park.  However, it appears not to be.

Here is another view of the same stone, but looking to the west:

Holyrood Park  Looking to the west near St Leonard's -  Is this the Slidey Stane?  No.

Here is another stone that may or not be the 'Slidey Stane' - still under investigation.

Holyrood Park  -  This stone may well be 'The Slidey Stane' mentioned in recollecitions of Holyrood Park
