Holyrood Palace

Queen's Park

The most prominent features in the picture above are:

Queen's Park and the lower slopes of Arthur's Seat (lower right).

Holyrood Palace  (upper right)

-  Dynamic Earth - a Millenneum project.  This has remained open.  It provides an exhibition of the history of the earth (light building with circular area above - centre of picture).

-  Construction of the new Scottish Parliament building (upper centre).  This area around the lower end of the Canongate at Holyrood once housed most of Edinburgh's breweries.

The southern part of this area includes part of Dumbiedykes - old tenement buildings demolished around 1960.
