  • Earl’s Palace is a ruined palace close to St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall, Orkney.

    Described as a fine example of French Renaissance architecture in Scotland, the palace was built by Patrick Stewart, the 2nd Earl of Orkney, in the early 1600s after he decided that the Bishop’s Palace accommodation wasn’t adequate for his needs.

    The palace fell into ruin in the 18th century and visitors can still see much of the stonework, which gives a glimpse of its former splendour. Open from April to October, for more information go to Historic Scotland’s website at www.historic-scotland.gov.uk
