A Royal Residence

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Cindy Grant on June 26, 2011

Holyrood Palace sits at the opposite end of the Royal Mile from Edinburgh Castle. It's the Queen's official residence when she is in Scotland, which is always one week in the summer. It was also once the home of Mary Queen of Scots. There is no photography allowed inside, on the grounds only. Check the website; if any member of the royal family is in residence, you might not be able to tour. You could also check out an exclusive evening tour. You can tour the royal apartments, the queen's gallery, and the royal gardens.
