Things to do Edinburgh Castle Guided Visit

Visiting Edinburgh Castle is a must on your trip to Scotland. What was the historic home of the Scottish royal families is located on a rock at the highest point in the city, known as "Castle Rock" or Castle Rock. This fortress has been the custodian of the secrets and conspiracies that shaped the course of Scotland during its history. In addition, you can enjoy panoramic views of the city in 360 degrees.

Within its walls, our guides will lead us on a journey through time in which we will learn about the cultures that have inhabited this huge rock since time immemorial. We will also learn about its commercial relations with the Roman Empire. The guides will show us some of the oldest buildings in Edinburgh, such as St. Margaret's Chapel, erected at this point around the year 1130.

From the moment you enter through the "Portcullis" or main gate, this fortress gets under the skin of the visitor. Those present feel like true historical characters, thus being a truly unforgettable experience.

Of course, your visit will delight those who love military history. The environment has magnificent artillery batteries and some of the largest cannons that have ever been seen, such as the old “Mons Meg”, of unspeakable size. You cannot miss the National Military Museum, where a myriad of war artifacts are exhibited. The "Royal Palace", the former residence of the Scottish royal families, is open for your visit.

- After the guided tour

Once the tour is over, you can use the time you need to visit its military museums (there are several). But also the impressive Crown Jewels or the Stone of Destiny, which has been present in all the coronation ceremonies of British monarchs, freely and without time limits.

And if you wait long enough, maybe you can attend the "Gunshot of One o'clock." As its name suggests, it takes place every day at 1:00 p.m., except Sundays, Good Friday and Christmas Day. It had a commercial purpose, serving as a communication mechanism between the Castle and the Port of Leith.

A tour for history lovers!
