On top of Castle Rock, the stunning Edinburgh Castle towers over the city. Many battles were fought over it, it functioned as a military base as well as the residence of several monarchs, including Mary Queen of Scots. Wander through the imposing quarters and admire the centuries old Scottish Crown Jewels: the Crown, the Sceptre and the Sword of State. Edinburgh Castle is also often a topic in Scottish Mythology. It is said to be the location of many ghost apparitions, like a wandering bag pipe player, a headless drummer, prisoners from the Napoleon era and even a ghost dog.
