#Thursdaydoors – Holyrood Palace

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing your link in the comments below, anytime between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time). 

Holyrood Palace is the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II in Scotland and is located at the bottom of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Visitors are not allowed to take photographs inside the palace but I took a few of the outside and of Holyrood Abbey which is alongside the palace.

Okay, I admit the door is tiny but its still there.

Terence and Michael in the ruin of Holyrood Abbey
The ruins from the gardens – no doors but quite a pretty picture

I included this last door picture because it amused me so much. It was quite funny to see the names of these two infamous murderers relegated to a lap dancing club. If you don’t know the story of Burke and Hare, you can read it here: https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofScotland/Burke-Hare-infamous-murderers-graverobbers/

We visited the Edinburgh Dungeon which was incredibly creepy but that is a story for another day.

    1. Thank you, Rebecca. I have a fascination with history and my interest in people extends to how people lived and socialised historically. Many of my adult books and stories are written with the deliberate intent of celebrating and remembering selected history and I love probing into the psychology of events.
