Garden Around the Scottish Parliament - FURTHER INFORMATION

Garden Around the Scottish Parliament - Edinburgh visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Garden Around the Scottish Parliament' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Lothian.

The Scottish Parliament Buildings were designed to reflect the natural landscape of Scotland. This is helped by the natural setting of the Parliament, on the edge of Holyrood Park and overlooked by Salisbury Crags. Next to the Parliament buildings is the grassed amphitheatre garden shown in this panorama.

The Scottish Parliament was designed by Enric Miralles. It opened in 2004 to much controversy, being 3 years late and costing 10 times the original budget. The buildings are at the end of the Royal Mile, opposite Holyroodhouse Palace and the Queens Gallery. It is a mile away from Edinburgh Castle.

Other popular attractions near to the Scottish Parliament include the Museum of Edinburgh, the People's Story Museum, St Giles' Cathedral and Calton Hill.
