Edinburgh Castle

The genius will explore what you can pay for!

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.
