The Route to the 'Slidey Stane'

Thanks to Lily Laing and others from the Historic Scotland Park Rangers' office in Holyrood Park for helping to locate this stone.  I hope we now have the right stone.

To find it:

1.  Start at the park entrance at the south end of St Leonard's Bank

The site of Jeanie Deans Cottage on the western edge of Holyrood Park  -  April 2006

2.  Take the footpath on the right for 80yards.

3. Turn left up the hill for 15 yards and the stone is straight ahead.
