Foursquare Tips

  • Holyrood is the Royal palace in Edinburgh. It was Mary Queen of Scots home, where she married both Lord Darnley and the Earl of Bothwell. Her secretary, David Riccio, was murdered in her rooms.
  • A great self guided audio tour. A tight squeeze in some spots (stairs) but worth the effort. The abbey and the gardens are nice as well.
  • In the company of a guide, groups may enjoy a private tour of the State Apartments before the Palace opens to visitors for the day, a unique opportunity to go 'behind the ropes' in selected rooms.
  • Check before you visit, in case a member of the Royal family is staying there as there will be no tours that day.
