  Edinburgh Castle
by stevezero

Edinburgh Castle stands on a volcanic hill, some 80metres above the city. There has been a fortification atop the hill since recorded time.
The first stone castle dates from the 11th Century. The castle as seen today, dates from around that time, with frequent modifications. It is therefore a mix of all different types of styles.

In the care of historic Scotland
Admission Charge - 9.80
(might be better to buy an explorer ticket or years membership if visiting several of their sites)

Directions: Top of hill, just look up from the city.
