Ahead of St. Andrew's Day, join us at the Palace of Holyroodhouse to discover myths and legends associated with Scottish monarchs, explore stories behind famous symbols, and hear traditional music played on the fiddle.
Scottish symbols can be found throughout the Palace of Holyroodhouse, from architectural details to interior decoration. Join us to discover the story behind some of Scotland's most famous symbols, and take inspiration from these symbols to create your own in our metal embossing activity.
The Great Gallery at the Palace of Holyroodhouse contains many portraits famous Scottish monarchs such as Charles II, Mary, Queen of Scots, and Robert the Bruce. Yet some of the names and faces in these portraits are not so familiar- find out more in our drop-in talks exploring the tales of some of Scotland's mythical monarchs.
The Palace has been filled with many different types of music over the years. To help celebrate St. Andrew's Day the Palace will be filled with traditional Scottish fiddle tunes. Short 10 minute performances will take place at 12:00, 13:00, 14:00 and 15:00.
