The best way to appreciate the historical past of Edinburgh is to explore the Royal Mile on foot. This famous thoroughfare stretches from the high hillside setting of Edinburgh Castle for approximately one mile downhill to the palace of Holyroodhouse. It’s really a continuation of four streets joined together – the Castle Hill, the Lawnmarket, the High Street and the Canongate. As you start the walk, Edinburgh Castle looms above you. You pass Gladstone’s Land, Lady Stair’s House, and St. Giles Cathedral, and stand adjacent to Parliament Square, where the buildings now house the Law Courts of Scotland.


See the church of Canongate and just prior to arriving at Holyroodhouse Palace, you’ll walk along White Horse Close, known as the starting point for stage coaches from Edinburgh to London. It’s time now to pay a visit to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. This magnificent palace is the British Monarch’s official residence in Scotland and is closely associated with Mary Queen of Scots, who resided here for six tragic years, and Bonnie Prince Charlie. Your guided visit will include the state apartments which are filled with tapestries, paintings, and impressive furniture. Of special note is the picture gallery with over 80 portraits of Scottish Monarchs.
