This fine baroque palace is closely associated with Scotland's rich history and is the country's only working palace. Discover the ancient menagerie, 14 magnificent historic State Apartments and the romantic ruins of the 12th century Holyrood Abbey, as well as the Palace gardens where the King hosts his annual Garden Party.

After leaving Holyroodhouse, head to Restaurant Martin Wishart to enjoy a six-course tasting menu. Set on the banks of the dockside, Restaurant Martin Wishart is one of Britain's most celebrated restaurants, twice being named "Scottish Restaurant of the Year" by The Good Food Guide.

The restaurant also has four AA rosettes to its name and has retained its Michelin star every year since being awarded the accolade in 2001. Martin himself is a highly decorated chef and respected by many for his contributions to Scottish fine dining. Earlier in his career he worked with chefs including Marco Pierre White, Nick Nairn and Albert Roux. You'll be welcomed with a glass of Gosset Brut Excellence Champagne, before enjoying Chef Wishart's French-inspired dishes, made from locally-sourced, sustainable Scottish ingredients.
