Edinburgh - Panoramic & Castle (half day)

Your tour today begins with a panorama of the city. See Princes Street, the famous Royal Mile and view the 17th Century Palace of Holyrood Palace. The palace was the home of Mary Queen of Scots from 1561 to 1568 and was occupied by Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745. The scene of many a great historical drama including notorious murders, and power-hungry personalities, the palace is now the Queen’s official residence in Scotland. Drive up to “Arthurs Seat” or Calton Hill for some spectacular views over the city and return to the Castle.

Enjoy a visit to the impressive Edinburgh Castle, with its superb views and dimly lit echoing corridors steeped in legends and history. The castle stands on an extinct volcanic rock overlooking and dominating the City’s skyline. Once inside, you will have the opportunity to see the castle’s many different architectural styles, reflecting its importance throughout the history of Scotland, with the oldest section dating back to the 12th century. You will also have the opportunity to view the Crown Jewels of Scotland and the Stone of Destiny before returning to your ship.
