Edinburgh Castle guide


Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline, atop a rocky outcrop in the heart of Scotland’s capital.

One of the oldest structures of its type, the site of the castle is believed to have been used as a fortress in the Iron Age.

The castle has had a noteworthy military presence since the 16th century and remains a garrison to this day.
