Scotland Things to Do: 1,337 reviews and 2,738 photos


A designated UNESCO world heritage site and for good reason! The catle remain in immaculate condition despite being costructed in 1688. The castle sits atop a rocky outcropping and simply dominates the Edinburgh skyline. There are several museums within the castle which still operates as a military headquarters. 1 hour guided tours run about every hour throughout the summertime. If you're in Edinburgh you just can't miss stopping by. So much history on such a grand scale. a definate must!
