The Stone Walls of Holyrood Palace

“I travel because seeing photos in a brochure wasn’t good enough for me. It was to be there, that was everything.” – Wiremu Ratcliffe

Holyrood Palace is the Queen’s Official residence in Edinburgh. It has been the home to royalty for over 500 years now. It is in the east of the city centre, at the foot of the Royal Mile.

Visitors to the palace are greeted with large fresco paintings as they go up the main stair case.

Standing next to the Palace of Holyrood is the Holyrood Abbey stone ruins, which is one of the most grand medieval abbeys in Scotland.
