It sits on the top of a volcanic rock formation commanding the city skyline and offers stunning panoramic views of Edinburgh, the Firth of Forth and Fife. Inside the castle walls you’ll find St Margaret’s Chapel, the Stone of Destiny and the majestic Great Hall which dates from the early 12th century and gives glimpse of medieval life in Edinburgh.
2. Loch Ness
One of the most famous lakes in the world, Loch Ness is the second largest loch in Scotland after Loch Lomond (and due to its great depth it is the largest by volume). About a mile wide at most places it holds the legend of an infamous sea monster. The most notorious mythical creature of modern time, Nessie, is said to dwell in the lake. With an air of mystery, the intriguing area of Loch Ness should not be missed. You might even get a glimpse of Nessie!
