Question

"Can you help to identify the building please?  There is a coat of arms and 'Nemo Me Impune Lacessit', which is the motto of the British Army.

There are pairs of pillars at each side of the door and perhaps a courtyard through the rear.

It does not seem to be Redford Barracks because of the pairs of pillars.

There is a stamp on the rear of the photo, F. E Bailey, Artist and Photographer, 96 Nicolson Street, Edinburgh.

"Hi Stuart:

You'll see from the caption that I've added to this photo that the photo was taken outside the main entrance to Holyrood Palace.  That's the entrance beyond the fountain as you approch the palace from the west, across the courtyard.

There is a crown and clock at 'roof level' above this coat of arms.

I don't know the date of the photo, but it would presumably have been taken some time between about 1887 and 1915.  That's when F E Bailey had his studio at 96 Nicolson Street, Edinburgh."
