Considered by many to be the grandest of all Scotland's castles. The castle architecture is outstanding - the Great Hall and gatehouse of James IV, the marvellous Renaissance Palace of James V and the Chapel Royal of James VI. The Castle has strong links with Mary Queen of Scots. She was crowned in the Chapel in 1543 and narrowly escaped death by fire in 1561. Her son, the future James VI, was baptised here in 1566.
