BEDROOM OF MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS, AT HOLYROOD

BEDROOM OF MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS, AT HOLYROOD

There has been no attempt to redecorate the private apartments of Queen Mary. These faded hangings, the arras which concealed the door leading to Darnley's room, are all as they were. Everything is splendid and the splendour is slowly decaying. It is a poignant experience to enter this place where the tragic queen lay alone with her dark thoughts and memories.
