CASTLE PLAN

EDINBURGH CASTLE

THE ROYAL PALACE

The Palace was the official royal residence of the later Stewart kings and queens.

Mary Queen of Scots gave birth to the future King James VI (and 1st of England) on 19th June 1566 in a small chamber room known as Queen Mary's Room.

The Palace took a battering during the Lang Seige, but in 1617 it was remodelled inside and out to it's present state for King James VI's 'hamecoming' from London (his only visit back to Scotland).

The Palace is home to the Honours or Regalia of Scotland, the Scottish Crown Jewels which are on display in the Crown Room along with the Stone of Destiny, Scotland's coranation stone which was returned to Scotland in 1996.
