Treasured Places - HLF funded (1 August 2007)

In 1998 Holyrood was chosen as the location for the new Scottish Parliament building after consideration of a number of sites in Edinburgh. The parliament complex, comprising offices, administration centre, debating chamber and committee rooms, was designed by the Catalan architect Enric Miralles and incorporates the 17th century Queensberry House within the building complex.
