scottish parliament

 

High Street, Edinburgh, EH99 1SP

Scottish Parliament was built in 2004 to house the newly formed devolved Scottish Government which had been voted for in 1999 by the people of Scotland.  This was the first time Scotland had a parliament building since the union with England in 1707.

The parliament was a controversial building with cost being one of the main concerns (esitimated cost was £40 Million, final cost was £431) and aslo the new design which was not inkeeping with the historical archetecture in Edinburgh.

Tours of the building are available daily and last for one hour.  You get to visit rooms such as the Debating Chamber and Committe Room.
