ROL Cruise recommends...


1. Visit the iconic Edinburgh Castle

Dating back to at least the 12th century, Edinburgh Castle is steeped in history. As well as having been the home of various kings and queens, the Castle has hosted numerous important events over the years and witnessed many sieges. Alongside learning about the Castle’s fascinating history, you'll also have the chance to see Scotland's crown jewels, be dazzled by The Great Hall and witness the firing of the One O’clock Gun. If you're visiting in August, even better – this is when the famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo is performed.


2. Enjoy the great outdoors

Holyrood Park is the name given to the array of hills, lochs, glens, ridges, and basalt cliffs to be found at the heart of Edinburgh. With a name said to derive from a King Arthur myth, Arthur’s Seat is the tallest of these hills and one of Edinburgh’s top visitor attractions. Rising above the city to a height of 250 metres (822 feet), the peak offers magnificent views of the city.


3. Board the magnificent Royal Yacht Britannia

The Royal Yacht Britannia served the British Royal family for 44 years, travelling over one million miles and enabling thousands of royal visits. Decommissioned in 1997, the ship is now one of Edinburgh's top tourist attractions. Embark Britannia to discover the ship's fascinating past and learn about all the grand receptions, royal honeymoons and relaxing family holidays that took place on board. See everything from the State Drawing Room to the Queen's Bedroom and from the Sun Lounge to the Admiral's Cabin.


4. Have a whisky

Brimming with quirky pubs and bars, Edinburgh presents plenty of opportunities to sample an authentic Scotch whisky. For those particularly passionate about Scotland’s favourite beverage, there’s The Scotch Whisky Experience. Here, you’ll take a walk through whisky history and see the complete whisky making process in action. You’ll also get to see the centre’s staggering collection of Scotch whiskies and taste some of the regional specialties.


5. Experience Camera Obscura

Don’t miss Edinburgh’s Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. Great fun for all ages, this interactive and hands-on attraction features optical illusions, a vortex tunnel, a mirror maze and a shrinking room. Your ticket also includes access to the building’s rooftop terrace, which offers 360 degree panoramic views of the city – Edinburgh at sunset is a truly breathtaking view.
