The Book

Thank you to Peter Grootes, Best, The Netherlands for allowing me to reproduce photos from his book:

'Photograph from View Album of Edinburgh and District'

published by Patrick Thomson, Cash Drapery Store, North Bridge, Edinburgh, around the 1890s.    Here are a few more photos from the same book.

The View

This view looks to the south towards Holyrood Palace and the ruins of Holyrood Abbey beside it, at the NW corner of Holyrood Park.

The hill in the background is Arthur's Seat, the extinct volcano, 823 ft high, in the centre of the park.
