Edinburgh Reward: No offer available

Standing on its great rock, Edinburgh castle dominates Scotland’s capital.

The castle was home to kings and queens. Queen Margaret (later St Margaret) died here in 1093, and Mary Queen of Scots, gave birth to James VI in the royal palace in 1566.

In 1996, the Stone of Destiny, on which kings were enthroned for centuries, was returned to Scotland and is displayed in the Crown Room.

From the 1600s onwards, the castle was a military base with a large garrison.

Edinburgh Castle is the most visited, paid for attraction, in Edinburgh and a must see on any itinerary.
