We booked a free tour for today and were guided by Barbara. Barbara knows everything about this place and gave us a comprehensive talk about all aspects of the building and of the Scottish Parliament. She was amazing. And the building is amazing. It’s well worth a tour to go into all the nooks and crannies and get a feeling for the materials used. A worthwhile thing to do.
