[Holyrood Palace, Scotland.] 72.[Holyrood Palace is the chief royal palace in Scotland, and the residence of Mary, Queen of Scots, for the six tragic years. The buildings are in an unimposing French style forming a quadrangle, with the historical apartments on one side the state apartments on the other. The Palace was begun in 1500 by James IV. Since the departure of James VI (1603) to ascend the English throne, Holyrood has seldom been visited, and never occupied for any length of time, by any crowned head. Queen Victoria occassionally used the Palace, and George V. and Queen Mary were in residence for some days n 1927.]
