St Margaret's Loch

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

St Margaret's Loch is a shallow man-made loch to the south of Queen's Drive. It is around 500m east of Holyrood Palace, and about 100m north of the ruin of St Anthony's Chapel. Once a boggy, marshland, the loch was formed in 1856 as part of Prince Albert's improvement plans for the area surrounding the palace. The loch has been used as a boating pond but is now home to a strong population of ducks, geese, and swans. (Quoted from Wikipedia)
