Historical Notes

  • Holyrood Palace is the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. Located at the bottom of The Royal Mile in Edinburgh, at the opposite end to Edinburgh Castle. Holyrood has served as the principal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scots since the 16th century and is a setting for state occasions and official entertaining. Queen Elizabeth II spends one week in residence at the beginning of each summer, where she carries out a range of official engagements and ceremonies. The 16th century Historic Apartments of Mary, Queen of Scots and the State Apartments, used for official and state entertaining, are open to the public throughout the year, except when members of the Royal Family are in residence.
  • Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age (2nd century AD). From the 15th century the castle's residential role declined, and by the 17th century it was principally used as military barracks with a large garrison. The castle, is Scotland's most-visited paid tourist attraction.
