Royal Botanic Gardens
The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh was founded in the 17th century as a ‘Physic Garden’, growing medicinal plants. This first Garden was in St Anne’s Yard, part of the Holyrood Palace grounds, and occupied an area the size of a tennis court. It now extends to four sites – Edinburgh, Benmore (near Dunoon in Argyll), Logan (near Stranraer in Galloway), and Dawyck (near Peebles in the Borders), and is the second richest collection of plant species in the world.
Edinburgh Castle
Edinburgh Castle dominates the city of Edinburgh like no other castle in Scotland and Edinburgh Castle is unequalled in the whole of the British Isles. Edinburgh Castle is the site of the world famous annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Over one thousand years of history sit on top of the famous Edinburgh rock which is actually an extinct volcano and it is easy to see why over a million visitors a year visit Edinburgh Castle.
Holyrood Palace
Founded as a monastery in 1128, the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh is The Queen's official residence in Scotland. Situated at the end of the Royal Mile, the Palace of Holyroodhouse is closely associated with Scotland's turbulent past, including Mary, Queen of Scots, who lived here between 1561 and 1567. Successive kings and queens have made the Palace of Holyroodhouse the premier royal residence in Scotland. Today, the Palace is the setting for State ceremonies and official entertaining.
