Edinburgh Castle

There is only one easy way up this crag in central Edinburgh, so it was the perfect location for the city's ancient fortifications and famous castle. Scholars say Castle Rock has been inhabited continually for more than 7,000 years and there has been a royal residence here for nearly a thousand years. Modern visitors can tour the Great Hall and several military history exhibits, and view the Stone of Destiny and the Scottish crown jewels.

View Of Princes Street From The Castle

Great viewing spot....even on grey day in Edinburgh.

New Year's Eve at Edinburgh's Hogmanay

In Scottish, Hogmanay means the last day of the year. It's a time for celebration to welcome in the new year. And no place does it better than Edinburgh. Its three days of celebrations begin with a torchlight procession on December 30 where 40,000 people carry lit torches through the city. On New Year's Eve itself, the city turns over to music concerts at every corner - the Street Party on Prince's Street, small concerts in the Gardens below Edinburgh castle, and a traditional Céilidh with Scottish music and dances. At midnight, the sky lights up and the ground shakes from the fireworks display. A wonderful way to ring in the new year!

See the majestic Edinburgh Castle!

Whether you are in Edinburgh for the first time or you are a frequent visitor, a visit to the majestic Edinburgh Castle is a must. While the castle itself sits on the rugged dormant volcano dominating city's skyline, it's hard not to gaze through them wherever you are in Edinburgh. Don't miss out the 1 o' Clock gun fire!
