Aerial photograph of Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh Scotland UK. The Palace of Holyroodhouse as it is more correctly known is the official residence of the Scottish Moarch, a role it has served for 400 years. Most of the Palace was constructed 1671 to 1678 with the north-west tower dating from the 15th century. Adjacent the Palace are the remains of Holyrood Abbey.Holyrood Abbey was founded by King David I, King of Scotland, in 1128. The Eastern part of the Abbey was demolished in 1570, however the remaining part was used as a parish church up to the 17th century after Following a roof collapse in the 18th century the building was left as a ruin.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. There is a search facility ( bottom left )but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999. As well as the views in my gallery, we can take new photographs specially to order, just email me for a quote.
