Beautiful gardens between the Old Town and New Town and split in two by the Mound. Free admission most of the day. Do not miss: -Scott Monument: climb the 287 steps to the top for a super view of the city. - West End Churches: St John´s Church worth visiting for its fine gotic and St Cuthbert´s…
This is a lovely place to visit between Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street shopping.
Lots to explore - and paths up to the Old Town. Ross Fountain recently been restored. Reasonable park for young kids at the far west end.
Princes Street gardens runs along Edinburgh's main shopping street. If the weather is nice, its a great place to sit and watch the world go by.
Both Princes Street East and West Gardens are nice to wander through, with fantastic views up to the Castle. Great photo opportunity!
Brilliant views of Edinburgh castle, Princess Street and Old Town. Full on Xmas season starts in the middle of November with a grand opening one of the most beutifull Xmas markets. Drinks, food and a pre-xmas banter guaranteed!

Point of Interest
“Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age, although the nature of the early settlement is unclear. There has been a royal castle on the rock since at least the reign of David I in the 12th century, and the site continued at times to be a royal residence until 1633. From the 15th century the castle's residential role declined, and by the 17th century it was principally used as military barracks with a large garrison. Its importance as a part of Scotland's national heritage was recognised increasingly from the early 19th century onwards, and various restoration programmes have been carried out over the past century and a half. As one of the most important strongholds in the Kingdom of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle was involved in many historical conflicts from the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century to the Jacobite rising of 1745. Research undertaken in 2014 identified 26 sieges in its 1100-year-old history, giving it a claim to having been "the most besieged place in Great Britain and one of the most attacked in the world".”
