Edinburgh Castle and Attractions

Tour Scotland by Car Edinburgh


Edinburgh is Scotland’s capital city and a “must see” for all visitors to Scotland.  Famous for its beautiful Georgian architecture, the sky line of the City is dominated by Edinburgh Castle, an imposing fortification that is perched high above the City, atop an ancient (and dormant!) volcano.   A day trip to Edinburgh from Crianlarich will leave you spoilt for choice in terms of activities: visit the Castle, take a tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia, walk along the Royal Mile, visit the bars and restaurant of Rose Street and the shops on Princess Street, take some photos at Holyrood Palace (the Queen’s residence in Edinburgh) and perhaps visit the Scottish Parliament.  If you time your visit for August, you can even take in a performance at the Edinburgh Festival or the Fringe.
