ABBEY COURTHOUSE

The Abbey Courthouse once housed the Scottish Court. It is now used by the High Constables of Holyrood House.

It is situated on the right hand side of the Palace gates on Abbey Strand just behind the Old Free Church of Scotland.

The heraldic panel fixed to the wall is the cypher and arms of King James V. It was originally fixed above the entrance to the Gatehouse.

The outline of the Gothic Porch and Gatehouse, built in1502, are still visible. Both were demolished in 1753 by the Keeper of the Palace.
