Palača Holyrood (engleski: Holyrood Palace) je dvorac u Edinburghu, službena rezidencija britanskih monarha u Škotskoj.

Kraljica Elizabeta II sa porodicom, svako ljeto provede barem jedan tjedan u Palači Holyrood, odmarajući se. Tad je on zatvoren za posjetioce, inače je čitavu godinu otvoren.

Karakteristike i historija gradnje

Palača Holyrood nalazi se na dnu Royal Mile, odmah do ruševina augustinske Opatije Holyrood, koju je 1128. osnovao kralj David I koji je te godine poklonio zemljište na brdu Holyrood redovnicima da podignu svoju opatiju i samostalno upravljaju njome.

Najstariji gotički dio dvorca podigao je između 1501. - 1505. škotski kralj James IV odmah do Opatija Holyrood. Gradnju je nastavio njegov sin James V dodajući nova renesansna krila oko kvadratnog dvorišta.

Kad je James I postao i engleski kralj, odselio se London pa je dvorac izgubio svoju funkciju. Dvorac je obnovljen 1633. u sklopu priprema za krunidbu Charlesa I za škotskog kralja.

Palača je temeljito rekonstruirana i dograđena između 1671. - 1679. po nacrtima arhitekata Williama Bruca i Roberta Mylna.

Jakobitski lider Charles Edward Stuart mladi pretendent imao je dvorcu od septembra do oktobra 1745. svoju rezidenciju.

Palača je ponovno renovirana polovicom 19. vijeka, a za vladavine britanskog kralja Georga V još prije Prvog svjetskog rata potpuno je modernizirana, uvedena je struja i centralno grijanje.

In the company of a guide, groups may enjoy a private tour of the State Apartments before the Palace opens to visitors for the day, a unique opportunity to go 'behind the ropes' in selected rooms.

Beautiful palace and the Queen's official residence in the summer. The audio tour is amazing as it goes into the details of every room. Many cool original artifacts in here, like Mary of Scott's bed!

Go early or go late. Give yourself an hour and a half. More to see here than any other Royal Residence. A Tip - check if the Queen is local, if so, you won’t get in. Right beside a great park too!

Very beautiful place that is still being used by the royal family when they are in Scotland. Beautiful royal artifacts from the scotch royal history.

Best guided audio tour of any of the Scottish castles so far. Well kept and plenty of access. Only wish it was possible to go more around outside, but understandable there’s need for restrictions
