The Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence in Scotland of Her Majesty The Queen, stands at the end of Edinburgh's Royal Mile against the spectacular backdrop of Arthur's Seat. This fine baroque palace is closely associated with Scotland's rich history and perhaps best known as the home of Mary, Queen of Scots and as the setting for many of the dramatic episodes in her turbulent reign. Mary was married at Holyroodhouse and witnessed the brutal killing of her secretary Rizzio by her jealous second husband, Lord Darnley, in her private apartments. The Palace served as the headquarters of Bonnie Prince Charlie during the 1745 uprising, as a refuge after the French Revolution for the future Charles X of France. From the time of the visit of George IV in 1822, it became one of the foremost attractions of the Scottish capital. This lavish guide provides a fascinating insight into the history of this spectacular site.
