The inside story

Edinburgh Castle has been the symbol of Scotland for several centuries and has seen countless wars, scandals, Kings and Queens, such as Queen Margaret and Mary Queen of Scots. It was built in medieval times as a fortress and has been expanded over the centuries to become the iconic monument we know today. Getting tickets and tours of the castle is easy, so you can explore every bit of this fascinating structure. Dating back to the 12th century, St Margaret's Chapel is the oldest part of the Castle. Then the impressive Great Hall was added by James IV in the early 16th century. The Half Moon Battery was added in the 16th century and the Scottish National War Memorial just after the First World War. That's also where you can see the famous Crown Jewels of Scotland alongside the Stone of Destiny, a large piece of sandstone used for the coronation of Scottish and English kings alike. And the One O' Clock Gun.
