18 Courtyard Fountain at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, Scotland

Prior to the construction of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the main residence for Scottish monarchs during the 15th and 16th centuries was Linlithgow Palace. King James V, who was born there, added an ornate fountain to the courtyard. This fountain at Holyrood Palace is a 19th century replica. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria. Among the carvings of lions and soldiers are historic figures in Scotland’s history.
