Edinburgh Castle is one of the most iconic castles in the world and easily dominates the Scottish capital’s skyline from its dramatic position atop an extinct volcano.
No wonder then that visitors come in their droves from all over the world to marvel at the historic fortress that is Edinburgh Castle.
Indeed, it’s one of the UK’s most frequented paid-for attractions with over one million visits each year.
There are many ways to admire the castle - but few hotels in Edinburgh city centre that enjoy unhindered views of it.
