Edinburgh's very own enclave of Stalinist housing, Dumbiedykes, is situated right on the edge of Holyrood Park. These flats are probably some of Edinburgh's most sought-after, and they'll soon be just over the road from Edinburgh's most overpriced. Very handy for the Parliament, as Council housing goes.

Over the years, a number of idiots have called for the dykes to be flattened: can't have Council tenants just round the corner from the Queen! Nonetheless, they persist, and are even repainted from time to time.

Out past the Soviet Embassy to Holyrood Road.
