Holyrood Abbey, Edinburgh: 8 reviews and 20 photos
Avoiding the building site that is the National Joke (Parliament) and the huge white tent (Dynamic Earth), you can get from the Royal Mile to Holyrood Palace and Abbey.
The abbey is a lovely, romantic ruin adjoining the Palace (entrance fee covers both buildings) -- note that when the Queen is in residence, you won't be able to get in. There is a good audio tour explaining the buildings' history and a good cafe. Walk around and soak up the atmosphere.
From here you can see the hill, Arthur's Seat, preserved by royal patronage, which is well worth every effort to get up. Honestly.
Take windproof clothing, water and a picnic (get before you head off down the Royal Mile), and enjoy Edinburgh!
Address: Holyrood Abbey - bottom of Royal Mile - Edinburgh
