Holyrood Palace

This is the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's official residence when she stays in Edinburgh. She used to have a brewery across the road from her, but her new neighbours as of 2004 have been the MSPs and staff of the Scottish Parliament. Democracy and monarchy eye each other up at Holyrood. Personally, I'm sure the Queen would have preferred the brewery! The flag flying above the Palace is the Lion Rampant, the rotal flag of Scotland.

I imagine the accomodations there are excellent.
