Edinburgh Castle

Recommended
Perched on the Castle Rocksite , the castle looks impressive. By turns, fortress, royal residence and military garrison, the castle is an ensemble of buildings built on several levels of a more civil than military appearance and joined by cobbled paths, making it feel like a big village. As well as the esplanade used for theMilitary Tattoo and the fortifications that afford a superbview of Princes Street, you must see theScottish crown jewels , housed in theRoyal Palace .
