Holyrood Park and Dumbiedykes Road

2008

This photograph above was taken in 2008.  This view looks to the west out of Holyrood Park, towards Dumbiedykes Road.  The flats in this picture were built, I believe, around the early 1970s.

The old Park Keeper's Lodge (the 'Parkie's Hoose') is just out of the picture on the right.
