Towering over Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle is the most popular tourist attraction in Scotland which makes it the ideal first stop on our two day itinerary! Sitting atop an extinct volcano, the castle, as we know it now, was constructed in the early 12th century. For decades, the castle was a site of conflict between Scotland and England with it said 'he who held Edinburgh Castle held control over Scotland'. Thankfully we now live in quieter times and the castle now attracts over 1 million visitors per year and gives a fascinating insight into Edinburgh and Scottish history. Home to the Scottish Crown Jewels and the Scottish War Memorial the castle should be the top of everyone's list when visiting Edinburgh. It also has the added attraction of offering stunning views over the city and beyond. Being a popular attraction, be prepared for crowds and try to book your tickets in advance online!
