There is much to see on a walking tour of Edinburgh. Every step is a revelation, from winding alleyways to ancient courtyards. The 11th century Edinburgh Castle towers above the capital on a hill of volcanic rock and gives stunning views of the city and countryside. St Margaret's Chapel (the oldest building in Edinburgh), Mons Meg siege cannon, the Great Hall, the magnificently restored Laich Hall and the Scottish National War Memorial are here with the 'Honours of the Kingdom' exhibition tracing the history of Scotland's Crown Jewels.

At the entrance to the castle is the top end of the Royal Mile, one of the oldest streets in Edinburgh that has retained much of its historical atmosphere. Part way down this famous street is St. Giles' Cathedral, The High Kirk of Edinburgh, which is generally regarded as the mother church of Presbyterianism. The Cathedral was officially consecrated by the Bishop of St. Andrews in 1243; however, its four massive central pillars date back to 1120.

At the other end of the Royal Mile is the baroque Palace of Holyroodhouse, which serves as a reminder of Scotland's volatile history. This is where Mary Queen of Scots lived for many years and where her secretary was murdered. Today, it is the official Scottish residence of Britain's Royal Family.

Situated within Holyrood Park is a large hill that resembles a crouching lion-this is Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano (the largest of a number of volcanoes that gave this region its shape). The view from the summit is magnificent.

Nearby is The National Gallery of Scotland, home to Scotland's greatest collection of paintings and sculpture from the Renaissance to Post-Impressionism, and is one of the very finest galleries of its size in the world. Alternatively, The Royal Museum houses the National Museums' of Scotland's international collections in a magnificent Victorian building. Displays include science and industry, geology, decorative arts, European sculpture, ceramics and ethnographies from around the world.
Close by is St. Mary's Cathedral, a splendid Victorian Gothic cathedral whose three spires are visible from many parts of the city. Meanwhile, the Royal Botanic Garden displays plant treasures from around the globe in its 70 exquisitely landscaped acres, while Edinburgh Zoo is home to over 1,000 rare and beautiful animals.
