Holyrood and Arthur's Seat

Looking at this picture, you'd be forgiven for thinking that I'd transported you to some rural castle in the Highlands of Scotland. But this is the top of Holyrood Palace, the Queen's official residence when she's in Edinburgh and the extinct volcano of Arthur's Seat in the background...all in central Edinburgh! It's lovely to be able to escape the city without even leaving the city!

So pretty! We took the tour of Holyrood Palace when we were there, but it closed early that day because the Prince was having a dinner later that evening. Never made it up to Arthur's Seat though... :(

Very nice picture. I would never have guessed it to be in the middle of the city!

Thanks for posting this- I remember climbing to the top with my Mum, (arthur's seat, not the Queen's place) so this photo brings back great memories.
