Dominating the city skyline thanks to its elevated position is Edinburgh Castle, an iconic structure from where the 13:00 gun is fired Monday to Saturday.

Art lovers should make time for the Scottish National Gallery, home to an outstanding collection of fine art as well as a fantastic selection of modern and contemporary art. Close by is the Royal Scottish Academy, another excellent venue offering a wealth of contemporary work.
Outside of the city's galleries and museums there's a vast number of things to see and do. Edinburgh Zoo is home to the UK's only giant pandas, along with more than a thousand other animals including koalas, a small pack of African hunting dogs, an Asian lion and two pygmy hippos.
Pay a visit to The Edinburgh Dungeon if you want to learn all about the city's darker side, as well as 1,000 years of Scotland's murky history. Sports fans might want to time their visit to coincide with the annual Six Nations rugby tournament and take the opportunity to watch the national team play at the Murrayfield Stadium.
