Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle in Scotland is one of the cities most dominating features, and actually stands on a 700 million year old volcano called Castle Rock, which is thankfully now extinct. Though the land has been inhabited since 850BC, the famous castle wasn't built until around the 12th century, the oldest remaining building being St Margaret's Chapel, constructed in the early 1100's in memory of Queen Margaret, who lived and died at the castle in 1093.

The castle has also been home to many other Royals during it time, including Mary Queen of Scots, who gave birth to her son, James VI, here in 1566. Since then, it has also been used as a prison, and an army garrison in the 1600's. Tourists can still enter some of the Castles dark dungeons, where many a poor soul have met their grisly ends.

The castle is supposedly one of the most haunted places in Scotland, and is home to the famous ghost of Lone Piper. The legend says that, centuries ago, a lone young piper boy was sent deep underground to explore newly discovered tunnels found under the castle. He was told to continuously play his pipes as he went, so that those above could monitor his progress, and so when his playing suddenly stopped, they went to investigate. No sign of the boy or his pipes were ever found, and his ghostly music can still be heard to this day, whispering eerily through the tunnels.

The famous televised event of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, which is attended by thousands, takes place every August at the front of the Castle. Visitors can witness displays of traditional Scottish kilts and songs, followed by a magnificent display of fireworks.
