In 1997 Scotland voted in favour of the creation of a devolved Scottish Parliament with its own powers within the United Kingdom. This year is the 20th anniversary of that decision.
Then began the planning and building of the Scottish Parliament Building in Holyrood, Edinburgh. Catalan architect Enric Miralles designed the striking postmodern building, which was completed in 2004.
Scottish Parliament had previously ended with the Treaty of Union between Scotland and England in 1707, creating the Parliament of Great Britain located at Westminster Palace in London.
The Scottish Parliament Building could be viewed practically and symbolically as Scottish political affairs being relocated back to Scotland. Here is a clip for our HD aerial collection of building –
