This historic and famous castle sits atop the Castle Rock precipice in the city of Edinburgh. Human occupation of the area that is now the fortress dates back to the second century AD or possibly even earlier.
Greyfriars Bobby Statue

The Palace of Holyroodhouse is the official Scottish residence of the royal family and has been since the 1500s. The structures on the palace ground dated back even further, to the founding of Hollyrood Abbey in 1128.

Fort William, UNITED KINGDOM
This town in the Scottish highlands is a popular tourist spot due to its picturesque location on Loche Linnhe as well as the abundance of outdoor activities, such as hiking and mountain biking, it offers to visitors.
This popular tourist spot is widely considered to be the most beautiful area of Scotland. The glen, a sharp impression between two towering mountains, is thought to have been formed by a glacier during the Ice Age.
Inverness, UNITED KINGDOM
Inverness, located in the Scottish Highlands, is the northernmost city in the UK and administrative center of the region. The Gaelic king MacBethad, popularized in Shakespeare's Macbeth, held a castle in this city during the 11th century.
One of the world's most famous lakes, Loch Ness is best known for the mythological creature said to be hidden in its waters. The legend is spurred on by the extreme murkiness of the water and depth of the lake.
This 13th-century castle on the shores of the famous Loch Ness has played an important role in Scottish history. The castle was partially destroyed and then abandoned in the middle of the 17th century, but today is being preserved.
Pitlochry, UNITED KINGDOM
Located in the Perth and Kinross region of Scotland, Pitlochry is a popular tourist destination known for scenic views of the nearby Ben Vrackie and Schiehallion mountains. The town has retained much of its Victorian era charm with architecture dating back to the mid-1800s.
