360° Panoramic Photo Tour: The Mary Fairfax Somerville Committee Room

About the image: There are six committee rooms at the Scottish Parliament, each featuring a complex vaulted ceiling and stem-shaped wood panels on the walls which form part of the acoustic design. The committee table are made of oak and sycamore. Seating at the back of the room is for the public and the media.

Committees play a central part in the work of the Parliament – taking evidence from witnesses, scrutinising legislation and conducting inquiries. Most meet weekly or fortnightly, usually on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays mornings. This online tour includes a view of the Adam Smith Committee Room.

If you're planning a visit to Holyrood in person, information including guided tour details and opening times is available in our Visiting the Parliament section.
