Edinburgh Castle is an ancient fortress erected on a rock of volcanic origin located in the center of the city of Edinburgh. It has been used for military purposes since the twelfth century, being intended for civil uses only in very recent times. It is located at the top of Castlehill Street, one of the four streets that form the Royal Mile. The castle is open to visitors and is managed by the specialized agency Historic Scotland. This is the most visited paid tourist attraction in Scotland.
Three of its sides are protected by steep cliffs, and access to the castle is limited to a steep slope on the eastern side of the castle. In the past there was an artificial lake in its northern zone. This lake, called Nor'Loch (north lake in Spanish), was desiccated in Georgian times with the construction of the New City, to be used as an outdoor mason and later as a park. It was from this moment when the citadel lost most of its defensive role.
The access to the castle is made through the esplanade, a wide paved square with an inclined plane that lies between the castle itself and the end of the Royal Mile. It is on this esplanade where the Military Tattoo is held annually, and it is here that once parades and various types of training for the military garrison of the castle were organized. The cylindrical battery is called half moon.
The castle is entered through a portal in front of the battery, which leads to a path that goes up to the right to the courtyard in the center of the fortress.

Walter Scott monument in Edinburgh
The Scott Monument is a Victorian-style Gothic monument erected in honor of the Scottish author Sir Walter Scott. It rises in the Princes Street Gardens of the city of Edinburgh, in front of the Jenners stores and in the vicinity of the Waverley railway station.
The tower, built in slate of Livingston and with a height of 61'1 meters, has an internal spiral staircase that allows access to the various floors of the building, from which you can see the city and surroundings. The highest floor, which is reached after 287 steps, allows you to reach the top of the building (those who reach it are given a certificate to commemorate the event). The grimy atmosphere of Victorian Edinburgh, which was then known as Auld Reekie (or the old smoking [city]) for the great industrial pollution, caused the stones to lose their original color, acquiring a blackish hue. Nowadays a kind of oil continues to ooze from its walls, which retain the characteristic black color. Bill Bryson has called it "the Gothic rocket."
