Edinburgh Castle

Situated on top of an extinct volcano, Edinburgh Castle has dominated the skyline for centuries. The castle's powerful stone walls have withstood many sieges and its extravagant apartments held the important residence of Scottish kings and queens.

Today it is home to Scotland's crown jewels, three military museums, the National War Memorial, the Prisons of War exhibition and much more besides. With more than a million visitors a year, from across the globe, the castle offers a fabulous day out - an experience not to be missed.
