From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Holyrood is an area in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. Located immediately to the east of the city centre, at the end of the Royal Mile, Holyrood was once in the separate burgh of Canongate before the expansion of Edinburgh in 1856. Westerly parts of Holyrood, excluding Holyrood Park, are roughly synonymous with the Canongate and Dumbiedykes areas.

Holyrood includes the following sites:

  1. The modern Scottish Parliament Building.
  2. The Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence of the monarch in Scotland.
  3. The ruins of Holyrood Abbey
  4. Holyrood Park, an expansive royal park surrounding the palace.
  5. The Moray House School of Education.
  6. Our Dynamic Earth.
  7. A number of residential, light commercial, and government properties.
