Edinburgh Castle: A Royal Fortress

Perched atop an extinct volcano, Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Scotland's capital. This iconic fortress harbours centuries of history within its ancient stones. From royal births to military sieges, it has witnessed pivotal moments that have shaped Scotland. While we chauffeur you through Edinburgh's cobbled streets, you'll feel the past come alive as we approach this majestic site.
