Next stop was Holyrood Palace. Holyrood Palace is Queenies official residence in Scotland and you can actually take the tour through and see some of the rooms as they are used today. This was very exciting. Thanks again Jannie and I thought you would appreciate I managed to get Staff to this one as well. Queenie actually spends one week here at ...
