Royal heritage.

Edinburgh Castle dominates the city and is an instantly recognisable landmark not only in Scotland but throughout the United Kingdom.
It was built in the eleventh century and attracts over one million visitors each year.
The castle was constructed on a rocky plateau making it the first city wall of what gradually grew into the city of Edinburgh.
In addition to the actual visit to this imposing monument, enjoy the breathtaking views of the rest of the city.
