Guarding the front entrance of the historical Edinburgh castle lie two famous Scottish figures, Robert the Bruce on the left and on the right the inspiration for the movie 'Braveheart', William Wallace. If you are interested in history, or you just like exploring castles, Scotland is the ideal location to explore. Edinburgh castle in particular is one of the most famous castles in the world, having seen hundreds of years of war and history.
Located on top of an extinct volcano, the view from the castle is amazing- showcasing the city of Edinburgh and looking out onto the North sea. Once inside the castle you are free to explore the grounds as well as view the famous Crown Jewels.
We have visited castles through Europe, but in our opinion Scottish castles are an experience all in their own.
