Queen Victoria and Prince Albert loved the Scottish Highlands and they wanted to turn Holyrood Park into a reflection of this, right in the middle of Edinburgh.  

Their vision involved a great number of ambitious engineering projects and allowed local people to access the park.  

This guided walk will visit many of the Victorian landscape improvement sites from lochs to roads in Holyrood park.
