Abbeyhill is a small suburb of Edinburgh, and is one of the oldest parts of the city. Its name came from Holyrood Abbey, which is now a religious historic site. Today, Abbeyhill is home to the new Scottish Parliament and many old homes and churches within the area, and many of the residents still live in old tenement homes that were built in the late nineteenth century. While Abbeyhill is chiefly a residential area with very few businesses or attractions, it is located near many of the city centre’s famous locations.
