Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh

From the edge of the of the Salisbury Crags in Holyrood Park you get a great view of Edinburgh city centre and the buildings in the surrounding area, none more so than the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Founded as a monastery by David I, King of Scots in 1128, it has served as the principal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scotland since the 15th century. With a nice wide angle lens at the gates of the main entrance you can get a clearer photo (no trees), but I still prefer this higher viewing angle to get a better idea of size.
