Queen Mary's Bath House, Holyrood Road

A peculiarly-shaped little building, Queen Mary's Bath House lies on the east side of Abbeyhill (Edinburgh), to the northwest of the Palace of Holyrood House. Comprising two storeys, with a pyramidal roof, although the building is shaped like a large bath, it was once attached to the Royal garden wall and is thought to have been a pavilion or summer-house, which has traditionally associated with Mary, Queen of Scots (1542-87) but where the Royal family might have relaxed while walking in the garden. An ornate dagger was found in the roof-space while the building was being repaired in 1789.
