  • 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.

  • It's nice, not bad :) maybe I was expecting more, but anyway it was nice!
