    EDINBURGH CASTLE

    Edinburgh Castle is Scotlands symbol of power, protection and majesty. It stands high on an extinct volcano with panoramic views of one of Europes finest capital cities.

    The castle guards the Scottish Crown Jewels and theStone of Destiny. Its many highlights include the Great Hall, Royal Apartments, Scottish National War Memorial and three military museums. The Prisons of War exhibition recalls the era when the castle held captured sailors from enemy nations, such as the newly independent USA. Other sights and sounds include the firing of the One oClock Gun and the oldest building in Edinburgh, St Margarets Chapel.

    STIRLING CASTLE

    Stirling Castle was once the favoured residence ofScottish kings, queens and nobles.

    Today at Stirling Castle, you too can visit the magnificent Renaissance Palace of James V. Theroyal apartments inside the palace have been returned to how they may have looked in the 1540s, when they were the childhood home of Mary, Queenof Scots. And the castle, with its fabulous Great Hall and Chapel Royal, is one of the countrys top places to visit. Sitting on a huge volcanic rock, ithas superb views of the battlefields of Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn where William Wallace and Robert the Bruce won great victories in the Wars of Independence against England.

    URQUHART CASTLE

    Overlooking the waters of Loch Ness and the mountains beyond, Urquhart Castle enjoys a spectacular Highland location.

    From clan feuds to Jacobite uprisings, this once mighty fortress has had a turbulent history. The last soldiers marched away in 1692, blowing up part ofthe castle as they left. But while the armies havelong-since vanished, Urquharts ruins remain aproud and spectacular reminder of the past.

    The story of the castle and the families who lived within its powerful walls is told in the impressive visitor centre. There is a fascinating display of artefacts plus an audiovisual presentation to enjoy.
