“Pretty and Historic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

One for a nice dry day, it is nice to wander around at your own pace and view what is left. Plaques explain what is what and there are plenty of opportunities for photos. Well laid out and easy to walk around.

“Truly Magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

The ruins of the Abbey are still of great quality, even though its not inside. The architecture and construction of this structure are spectacular. It was amazing to see the arches and columns that were hand crafted and placed with precision , to create this beautiful place. It is well worth seeing and be sure to take your camera....

“Nice enough”

this is a ruin, included as part of the Holyrood Palace price. Its nice enough to see for 10-20 minutes but not wouldn't say its really an attraction in its own right...

Worth looking if just for a really interesting photo shoot spot. The remains are just fascinating to wander around.
