Scotland’s best know and most visited historic building, Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Scotland’s capital city. Resting on an extinct volcano, Edinburgh Castle has a dynamic history that dates back to the 1100’s and it has been involved in many historical conflicts including the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century to the Jacobite Rising of 1745.
The castle now houses the Honours of Scotland and it is also the site of the Scottish National War Memorial and War Museum. Historic Scotland now operate the castle as a tourist attraction and they are also responsible for the conservation of the site including its restaurants, cafes, shops and educational centres. With stewards providing guided tours and audio tours in a variety of languages, the understanding and exploration of the castle could not be easier.
Visitors to the castle are also awarded with panoramic views of the city of Edinburgh from every level and angle of the castle, and on a clear day, you can even see the mountains of the Kingdom of Fife.
