Palace
“Just a short walk away from Abbeyhill is the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's official residence in Edinburgh. If you are lucky she (or other members of the Royal Family) might be visiting at the same time as you are. If not, don't worry, you will get to see to see the beautiful Gardens, the Palace, the Abbey ruins (from which Abbeyhill gets its name) and the Queen's Gallery. And if you still have energy, you can pop across the road and see the Scottish Parliament building.”
