Holyrood Abbey And Abbey Strand (Historic Scotland)
Holyrood Abbey And Abbey Strand
The ruined nave of the 12th and 13th century abbey church, built for Augustinian canons. Abbey and palace administered by the Lord Chamberlain. There is no free entry for Friends of Historic Scotland to Holyrood Abbey. The three-storey building on Abbey Strand has its origins in the late 15th or early 16th century. It was partly rebuilt in 1544 and was heavily restored in 1916. The buildings to the east began as an extension to the west tenement in the mid 16th century. Abbey Strand currently houses a Historic Scotland bookshop.
