Edinburgh has two distinctive caps its medieval old town and its New town. It is all split by a Grand Park which offers  one of Europe’s great walks. You may want to start your visit where the city did – at the Edinburgh Castle the fortified birthplace at the city over a thousand years ago. This imposing symbol of Edinburgh seats boldly on Iraq high above the city. While the castle has been both the fort and a royal residence since the 11th century most of the building today are from its more recent use as a military garrison.
