Towering over Scotland’s Capital city, Edinburgh Castle dominates the landscape of Edinburgh and is one of the world’s most famous castles. Parts of the site are still used as a military base but its better known as a world famous visitor attraction and a key element of the Edinburgh skyline. Over a million people visit the castle every year making it one of the UK’s most visited attractions.
Looking at the history books, the castle has been inhabited since as far back as the 2nd century. Even though there has been life within the castle walls as far back as then, the castle itself only dates back to around the 17th century.

Historic Scotland runs a number of amenities within the castle walls for tourists and locals alike. This includes cafes, restaurants, shops for castle memorabilia and world renowned live displays. The castle sits at the top of the equally famous Royal Mile.
