Holyrood Park Edinburgh

By 22nd November 2021 No Comments

Geotourist has an audio tour of Holyrood Park in Edinburgh.

The walk includes 14 points of interest and covers a distance of about 3.5Km.

Holyrood Park (also called the Queen’s Park or King’s Park depending on the reigning monarch’s gender) is a royal park in central Edinburgh, Scotland about 1 mile (1.6 kilometres) to the east of Edinburgh Castle. It includes hills, lochs, glens, ridges, basalt cliffs, and patches of gorse. The park is associated with the royal palace of Holyrood house and was formerly a 12th-century royal hunting estate.

This page is part of Coastal Knowledge, an online exhibition mapping some of the amazing places on the coast of Scotland.  It includes pictures, memories, artworks, stories and videos submitted by a variety of people including scientists, artists, coastal dwellers, tourists, and community organisations.  We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.

This exhibition is dynamic and ongoing- and we’d love for you to share contributions for it too!  To learn more and submit your own coastal knowledge, visit the main page of the exhibition.
