Edinburgh Castle dominates the capital's
skyline with stunning views across the World
Heritage listed Old and New Towns, and out

The Grassmarket from the West.
The Grassmarket square is located
in the heart of Edinburgh's old town. It is a broad and leafy square
that has been a market place for nearly 500 years.
The Grassmarket was the place for
many an execution in medieval times and where the body snatchers
Burke and Hare carried out the trade in the 19th century.
Thankfully, today it is more famous as the place people meet before
going on a night out and it has some fine restaurants, shops,
hotels, and pubs. The west side of the square is dominated by the
castle rock while its east entrance leads out up Victoria street to
the Royal mile.

The famous Royal Mile/ High street
is located in the heart
of Edinburgh's historic old town. The Royal Mile is one of the
most famous streets in Scotland. This
historic road leads from Edinburgh castle down to the
palace of Holyrood and the Scottish parliament. It is the main
artery that feeds to most of Edinburgh's attractions and is the perfect
location to explore Edinburgh and it's history.
