Artist's Description

Walking around Edinburgh with Chris Clark we heard the pipes and rushed up to the High Street to find the Pipes and Drums of Lothian & Borders Police leading a march followed by The Royal Company of Archers. Here you can see the Company of Archers as they pass by St. Giles Cathedral.

The Royal Company of Archers (The Queen’s Body Guard for Scotland), is the Sovereign’s personal Body Guard in Scotland. Founded in 1676, it received its first Royal Charter in 1704. The privilege of recognition as the Monarch’s Scottish Body Guard dates from 1822. It was originally formed as an Archery Club and the longbow is still the Royal Company’s principal weapon.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi in the USA)
