  • Attached to the oldest part of Holyrood Palace where Queen Mary of the Scots lived, this abbey is in ruins. But the photos you take here will be some of your favorite from the trip!  more »

  • This was actually my favourite part of our visit to the Holyrood Palace and grounds. The Abbey is a very imposing, atmospheric, and yet remarkably well maintained ruin. I wish we had visited during the summer, when more of the grounds would have been open to the public!
  • Though it is in ruins today, the structure is still imposing for an abbey. One can only imagine how it was decorated during its days. Photos are of Holyrood palace which is part of the admission.
  • Wonderful tour! highly recommend!
  • Take the free tour the fabulous guide Jamie, so knowledgeable and interesting best 45 minutes.
  • WOW! Impressive. Must see
