Salisbury Crags, Holyrood Park  1964
Salisbury Crags, Holyrood Park 1964
When sheep grazing added a touch of calm rurality to the park in the centre of Edinburgh, and kept the grass and scrub at bay. For a modern day view, 45 years on, taken from the same spot, see NT2772 : Salisbury Crags, Holyrood Park 2009. Sheep were grazed in the park until 1977.
