Holyrood Palace

22 Nov 13: After visiting the castle, we made our way to the Holyrood Palace. The entrance fee was a little cheaper than the fee for the castle.

we made our way into the palace through the main gate
once inside, this was what captured my attention
looks like a crown
behold the palace but no photography was alllowed
it was worth the visit
at the exit, we came into the abbey
ruined but maintained
view of the abbey from outside
it was once a grand abbey
it was rather quiet when we were there
not as hectic as the castle

  1. Pretty ancient palace. Looks like here is not crowded at all if to compare with Edinburgh castle.

  2. I think it is alright to pay the fee. At least they used the fund to upkeep and maintain the palace all the time.

  4. wow, very captivating "gold" color on the top of the castle.. i guess it was because of the sunlight and not really because they were built with real gold right?? haha.. :p

  13. I have found that it is very easy to take a Vacation Sites or a business trip plan . All I need to do is to go online and look at the many useful websites out there that deals with destinations , flights , programs , itinerary samples and so on .

  14. Hello Wenn, the place really looks deserted. Guess it is not as popular a tourist spot as the Edinburgh castle.

  15. This castle is quite nice though smaller in size. I wonder if you have ever visited the Hampton Court Palace. It is quite a popular tourist spot.
