On your Edinburgh Bicycle Tour, you’ll get to see the impressive Scottish Parliament Building!

The Scottish Parliament Building is the home of the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood in Edinburgh. Construction commenced in June 1999 and was finished by September 2004. It was designed by a Spanish architect named Enric Miralles. He unfortunately died before it was completed.

The building and its construction have been controversial from the start.The choices of location, architect, design, and construction company were all criticised. It was also 3 years behind schedule when it opened. It caused lots of frustration for many Scots. They also were upset about the final cost of £414,000,000 which came from taxpayers money. This was many times higher than the initial estimates of £10-40m.
