St Margaret’s Loch is within the Royal Park in Edinburgh, a stone’s throw from the Palace of Holyroodhouse – the Royal Residence in Scotland. This near-Christmas scene shows the swans oblivious to the frantic festive retail activities taking place just a mile or two away from here, in the bustling city centre.

Overlooking the loch is the 11th-century structure of St Anthony’s chapel – at least, what remains of it.

    Well, Duncan, I came to check out if I missed anything in your profile, and this is what I found! Extremely picturesque scene, is the sand white, or is that snow at the edge near the water?
