"Visit the castle of course...." Edinburgh Castle Tip by sandysmith
Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh: 252 reviews and 448 photos
Visit the castle of course. The castle was the seat of Scottish kings, and the royal apartments on view to the public include a tiny room in which Mary, Queen of Scots gave birth to the boy who became King James VI of Scotland and James I of England upon the death of Queen Elizabeth I of England in 1603. Within the royal apartments a permanent exhibition, in the form of a series of impressive tableaux, depicts some of the milestones in Scotland's story.
The castle is not only a historic monument but also a working military establishment, being the headquarters of the Scottish Division: that is why there is a guard on the main gate.
