For people interested in Scottish history, pay a visit to Milne’s Court. This open square was built in 1692 and was the first courtyard where people met many years ago. The City of the Dead Tours is also a must-do with exciting walks underground and in haunted graveyards.

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.
