Perched on a volcanic plug, Edinburgh Castle has dominated the skyline of Scotland's capital city for centuries. A mighty fortress and former royal residence, it is now a major part of Old and New Towns of Edinburgh UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Known as the ‘defender of the nation’, Edinburgh Castle remains an active military base.
