West Range

The west range, the plainest of the four fronts of the palace, was completed about 1504 in the reign of James IV. The row of large rectangular windows at the first floor level represent a suite of royal rooms: from left to right, the King's bedchamber, followed by an intervening lobby, two windows for the presence chamber and two more for the King's hall. These two rooms would have looked our over a pleasance or garden, laid out on the level piece of ground on which you are now standing. The Queen's suite of rooms was on the floor above; but while it mirrored the King's in its planning, most of its windows opened on the inner courtyard.

The battlements were added by the mason, Nicolas Jackson in 1504. The smoother masonry towards the right-hand corner represents the thickening added to the south front by James V in the 1530s, to make the palace look symmetrical when viewed from the south.

Le front oust, le moins beau des quatre fronts du palais, fut terminé vers 1504 pendant le règne de James IV. La rangée de larges fenêtres rectangulaires au premier étage représentent la suite des appartements du roi; de gauche à droite, la chabre du roi, suivie d'un vestibule intermédiaire, deux fenêtres pour la sale du trône et encore deux pour
las salle de reception du roi. Cs pièces donnaient sur un jardin de plaisance tracé sur le terrain horizontal où vous vous tenez en ce moment. Les appartements de la reine se trouvaient à l'étage au-dessus. Mais alors qu'ils reflétaient le tracé de ceux du roi, la plupart des fenêtres donnaient sure la cour interiéure.

Der Westbereich, die einfachste der vier Seiten des Palasts, wurde etwa im Jahre 1504 während der Herrschaft von James IV fertiggestellt. Die Reihe rechteckiger froßer Fenster im ersten Stock repräsentieren eine königliche Suite: von links nach rechts das Schlafzimmer des Königs, ein Aufenthaltsbereich, zwei Fenster für das Audienzzimmer und zwei weitere für die Halle des Königs. Die Aussicht dieser Räumlichkeiten war über Rasenbereich oder Garten, der sich auf der ebenen Fläche befand, wo Sie jetzt stehen. Die Räumlichkeiten der Königin waren befanden sich im Stockwerk darüber und obwohl die räumliche Planung der des Königsgleivch war, gingen die Fenster in den Innenhof hinaus.
