      The Palace of Holyrood House is one of the most haunting places I have ever visited. It is inextricably linked to Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland, who lived there during much of her reign. However, its history extended back centuries, and continued after her. It was built next to Holyrood Abbey, where its history actually began. Examples are Battle Abbey, the partially ruined building on the alleged site of the famous Battle of Hastings, and the ruins of Holyrood Abbey beside the Palace of Holyroodhouse in the Scottish capital Edinburgh, even though in the 17th century the demolished Augustinian monastery was rebuilt and fell into disrepair in the 18th century.
