Comments

It's so easy It's so easy
I slightly disagree with the other reviewer: this book withholds nothing, in text or photos, to give you a clear depiction of all the main areas in the palace. The book relates how it was built by King David I and rebuilt by Mary Queen of Scot's father, James V, to serve as her official residence. It was there that the infamous murder of her secretary, David Rizzio took place, one murderer holding a sharp dagger to her pregnant belly.

The home was additionally rebuilt by Charles II and was the main home of Bonnie Prince Charlie who tried to lead that doomed rebellion and take back the crown. (My husband is from Carlisle, England whose regiment in the Castle beat Charlie's insufficient army and butchered them in the most heinous way only the English knew how to do!)

From the Neolithic Arthur's Seat which is the depression from a defunct volcano and now encircled by the Queen's Park to the ruins of the Abbey Church where Mary Stuart married her 2nd and 3rd husbands, the ill-tated Lord Darnley and Bothwell to the newly refurbished Great Gallery, you see all the remarkable sides of this important site. As far as an official guidebook of a castle, this is a stand-out.

The text coverage is very good and the pictures are nice and clear. I would have liked to see some more pictures and soma additional coverage of the palace as a working royal palace.
