Edinburgh Castle Tour with Skip-the-Line Access led by a Local Guide

Edinburgh Castle Tour with Skip-the-Line Access led by a Local Guide

The Edinburgh Castle, one of the main Scottish landmarks, dominates the city skyline from the Castle Rock – the lava neck of an extinct volcano. The first reference to the castle is the John Fordun’s narration of the King Malcom III’s death – which happened back in the 1093! Could you believe the castle has been there for a thousand years? It sounds incredible, but there it is! With your local guide you will dive into the past and recall the ancient atmosphere that animated the castle walls back in the days. Room by room, you will listen to the story and legends that keep the memories of kings and knights alive. Pass by Crown Square, enter the Castle Museums and look at the Scottish Crown Jewels and admire the majestic Stone of Destiny – where monarchs were crowned. Last but not the least, climb the stairs and reach the terraces to enjoy the spectacular view all over Edinburgh.
