Photograph of Queen Mary's Bath House at Holyrood Palace. The building consists of a small tower like structure with two storeys with a tile roof that stands within the grounds of Holyrood Palace.

Contrary to the title, this building was probably never used as a bath house but may instead have functioned as a summer house or dovecote.
