The city centre is also home to the Black Watch Memorial, a monument created in 1910 to commemorate the deaths of officers and men who died in the Boer War. Of course no visit to the capital city of Scotland is complete without spending a day exploring the city’s spectacular castle. It’s one of Scotland’s top tourist attractions, an historic fortress which stands out and provides panoramic views of the city.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see the National Museum of Scotland and the amazing Outlook Tower which is one of the oldest in the UK.
