What to see and do
It would be a crime to leave Edinburgh without having personally experienced one of Scotland’s greatest icons - Edinburgh Castle, a monumental stone edifice that has withstood both the tests of time and countless sieges. The Castle’s history can be traced back to the Iron Age, and in its 1,000 years of history has undergone more attacks than any other site in Britain. The magnificent structure once served as a decadent royal residence for Scottish Kings and Queens and is today still home to the fabled Scottish Stone of Destiny.
Tourists should also visit Arthur’s Seat, which is within walking distance of the castle. Getting to the peak of Arthur’s Seat at 251m involves a one-hour hike. The reward is a breathtaking, panoramic view of the city, Edinburgh.
