Scotland regained parliamentary powers in 1999 but it was not until 2004 that the Scottish Parliament Building was finally completed after a turbulent construction phase. Situated at the bottom of the Royal Mile it is now home to a purpose-built parliamentary complex that includes the Parliament Chamber itself. Designed by the Spanish architect Enric Miralles, the building style divided opinion but it has now become a well-loved hub for Scottish politics. Free guided tours are offered daily for visitors and it is well worth taking the time to visit this historic building and gain an insight into Scotland's political past, present and future!
