Three days in Scotland – part 2

HOLYROOD PALACE, EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND –  One of the highlights of my trip to Edinburgh was Holyrood Palace. It’s one of the queen’s residences in Scotland. She has many. I’ve been to a few royal palaces throughout the UK and each one is special. This one typically gets national attention during Holyrood week in late June. Other than that, it’s a little forgotten. But to me it was something to remember.

You can’t take photographs inside, so unfortunately I can’t show you any this time. But I will say that it was grand and stately. As it should be.

There was also a ruined abbey that was clearly past its heydey. But it had the most beautiful arches and the sudden blue sky highlighted its particular architecture.

Finally, I finished the day off with one of these. One of the best I’ve ever had actually.
