    It's worth a stop on your way or way back from Arthur's Seat. You can sit in the back audience during a live session for free. The wood interior of The Debating Chamber is quite nice.

    I like the building. Public official buildings should be a bit daft, it punctures the natural sanctimoniousness of people who tend to inhabit them.

    Warhol exhibit is very good if you've got the time to visit it

    Faire le visite guidée. Très intéressant sur la vie politique en Écosse et magnifique bâtiment.

    I hate how this place looks all that money spent on this and it looks like a childs gang hut

    Get coffee from the cafe in garden lobby. Fair trade too.

    Anyone with Shetland connections who doses the tour will notice the designer missed Shetland off the map of Scotland. Maybe he knew something that we don't about an independent Scotland.

    Scottish Parliament purchases an astonishing 100% of its electricity from renewable sources like wind turbines, hydro and biomass. Water/heat consumption and waste management are handled sustainably.

    They even have a parliament shop where you can buy your own

    Don't take scissors or sharp/metal objects inside. Airport style security checks.

    Take the guided tour - whatever your views on the outside, you'll be impressed with the interior + its free!
