[The Palace of Holyroodhouse sits at the foot of the Royal Mile. This is a fantastic location to explore Edinburgh’s Old Town and very much worth a wander up The Royal Mile to reach the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle with its stunning views of Princes Street Gardens and beyond to Edinburgh’s New Town and Firth of Forth in the distance. Take time to explore the narrow closes, wynds and cobbled courtyards.
