Visit to the Palace of Holyroodhouse

Kevin and I toured the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the ruins of the Abbey on the grounds. The Palace was the home to many monarchs of Scotland, including Mary Queen of Scots. Today, the Palace is where Queen Elizabeth II resides when in Scotland each summer. The Abbey was founded by King David I in 1128, but was attacked and mostly destroyed in the late seventeenth century. More about the Palace and Abbey to come soon!
