... sites. Our next destination was Holyrood Palace which is where the queen and the royals stay when they are in Scotland. We parked just outside the palace but walked less than a block from the Palace to see the current Scottish Parliament which is in a very contemporary building.

We finished with a Scottish desert called Cranachan which was a dark chocolate basket filled with berries and cream & whisky. ...
