The Number 1 Attraction in Edinburgh

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Cindy Grant on June 24, 2011

No visit to Edinburgh would be complete without a tour of Edinburgh Castle. You could easily spend hours there! Walk up the Esplanade, and the Castle is right in front of you. From the side you get amazing views of the city and the Firth. So many things to see inside - the dog cemetery, prisons, chapels, towers, and no visit would be complete without seeing the crown jewels - better known as the "Honors of Scotland". There have been many ghost sightings at the Castle: American Revolutionary War soldiers, phantom pipers, a ghost dog, and headless drummers. Janet Douglas, the lady of Glamis Castle, was accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake here - it is said she still haunts the castle. Don't forget to stay around for the firing of "Mons Meg"!
