Edinburgh Castle is the most important sight and the town’s landmark of Edinburgh located on a mountain high above the capital city of Scotland. It was first mentioned in the 7th century CE and was home to Maria Stuart. Here you can see the crown jewels of Scotland and the Stone of Scone on which the Scottish and later the English kings and queens have been crowned.
The castle is located at the end of the Royal Mile in the city center. After getting a ticket you can get up the mountain, enjoy nice views and discover the tiny St. Margaret’s Chapel. The main buildings contain the main hall, a military memorial and crown jewels. As the castle is one of the most important tourist places in Scotland it can be pretty crowded. Better arrive early or buy tickets online in advance.
