This evening, I am posting a short video clip of the Scottish Parliament building at foot of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh.

The building houses the devolved Scottish parliament which became operational on Oct 11th 2004. There are 129 members of the parliament which has powers to pass legislation and alter tax rates.

The design of the building is somewhat controversial and the construction cost was equally so at GBP431M or 10 times over budget.

The building is accessible to the public and visitors can stay and witness proceedings in the chamber.
