Well worth the stop - fascinating site, with a "mort safe", names now known through the Potter series, and a view of the ancient city wall.
The history is really interesting - the graves of some prominent Scots are here and there is a good view over the town from the graveyard.

This wonderful historic Palace is best seen with a guide....the guide always has great background knowledge and quirky stories to tell, as you view the awesome fixtures and fittings as well as the grounds.
A wonderful, well-maintained site of great importance in Scottish history, especially relating to Mary Queen of Scots and James VI/I.

The minister is clearly fascinated with the history of this building and explained the siting of an abbey then church initially on this site way back in the days of King David the First of Scotland.
This place has some interesting people buried in the old graveyard, it is a lovely peaceful place with some good views of Carlton Hill.

John Knox lived for a while in a house on the Royal Mile with a view of his church and died there in the late 1500's.
I'm impressed that the Scots appreciate John Knox and history so much that they will not widen the street and remove this landmark (although if the Egyptians can move gigantic structures, I'm sure the local govern...

From the bridge you have a great view of the city as well as the big Waverly train station.
But it connects the Old Town to Princes Street/the New Town/Waverley station and has magnificent views of the Old Town on one side and Calton Hill on the other.

Great view from where it's sit right out side the chapel on top of the castle.
I personally thought it rather ugly looking, though what impressed me more was the view out over the city which the cannon was pointing.

You can view this statue from the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle, if you look towards the castle gate William Wallace is on one side and Robert the Bruce on the other.
I notice some reviewers have confused this site with the Stirling Monument which has its own trip advisor page
