Calked here on the way to Arthur’s Seat. Well worth a visit, nice views of the city from here. Not far to walk from nearby car park, walk isn’t too steep but can be a little muddy.

Chapel whose date of construction is unknown, worth the visit both for being an old Christian site and, the view and peace that the place provides.

From the top of Arthur’s Seat I spotted a ruin adjacent to the trail down to Holyrood Palace. It is the remnant of an old church. Below there is a picturesque pond with swans and ducks. 🦆

just a few steps off the main trail which heads up to arthur's seat you can divert off and see this ruin. It's much lower down and actually I think photos at this level turn out better than they do at the very top!

I saw this on the way down from Arthur's Seat and it is readily reachable by path to have a little potter around the 1.5 walls of the chapel that remain. It its heyday it would have been very beautiful and it still shows.
