The only building in the central area of Edinburgh’s Holyrood Park is St Anthony’s Chapel. Looking more like the gaunt ruin of an ancient castle than a religious building, it stands on a rocky outcrop high above St Margaret’s Loch, commanding excellent views over North Edinburgh, Leith and the River Forth. For a building whose construction must have been witnessed by people for miles around, surprisingly little is known about the origins of St Anthony’s Chapel. From the 1100s, ownership of the land now forming Holyrood Park was divided between the abbeys at Kelso and Holyrood, and it is thought that the area occupied by the chapel was owned by Kelso Abbey.
Great footage Are drones allowed in Holyrood Park, I thought there was plans to ban them?
Nope there has been rumours but never happened
Good news I was through there before lockdown too and had it in my head they were banned, so didn’t fly.
Just stay cleat of Parliament and Holyrood.
Is that Bass Rock I can see in the distance on the right?
Will be berwick law, normally you can see the bass rock but it would be slightly to the left of berwick law
You can almost just see the bass rock its about 1" to the left of berwick law its very faint
Can just about see it. I went to North Berwick to do a job one day, was the smelliest place I’ve ever been, all you could smell was Gannet crap and fish all coming from Bass Rock!
Better nipping down to seacliff beach stunning down there
