Edinburgh Castle is one of the oldest fortified places in Europe. With a lavish history as a royal residence, military garrison, prison and fortress, it is alive with many fascinating tales. When you climb Castle Hill, you will walk in the footsteps of soldiers, kings and queens – and even the odd pirate or two. Even though parts of it remain in military use, the castle is now a world-famous tourist attraction.




Below, the Royal Mile stretches down the steep escarpment to the elegant Palace of Holyroodhouse, another of Edinburgh's most famous landmarks. Lined by brick townhouses and historic landmarks, the Royal Mile is also filled with small shops, tearooms, kilt makers, museums, and cafés. Between its tall buildings - some reaching to more than 10 stories on the downhill side are narrow alleys, called "winds," that weave between tiny hidden closes.
