Holyrood Palace  -  The Interior Quadrangle

Here is a view of the Interior Quadrangle at Holyrood Palace. 

The book Modern Athens, published 1829, described Holyrood Palace as the only Royal Palace in Scotland that had not fallen into ruins. 

The Palace was probably build soon after Holyrood Abbey which lies beside it.  Holyrood Abbey was build early in the 12th century by David the First.
