  • Even on a grey cold day this place has so much atmosphere. As it was very out of season it was extremely quiet and as a result we got the place almost entirely to ourselves 
  • After the tour of the Palace there lingers in the ruins of the Abbey. Is a magical and charming that completes a visit to the Palace. Also makes great pictures.

  • Beautiful and full of inspiration. We took the tour of the Holyrood Palace and therefore came by this wonderful Abbey. Not much is left from it, but it is still quite the view.
  • Not much left of the Abbey, but very interesting and nice to look around. Great views of the surroundings.
  • You end the palace tour through the abbey. You cannot access it without having purchased tickets.
  • Not much there to see unfortunately. Access to the abbey goes via the palace and requires tickets.
  • It's nice, not bad :) maybe I was expecting more, but anyway it was nice!
