Edinburgh City Tour 3rd part; on the Calton Hill and Arthur's Seat

How to go to Edinburgh Castle;
From Prince Street (bus station on left side of Edinburgh train station exit), Edinburgh Castle is around 20min walking distance on the opposite side, along the end of Royal Mile street. Admission costs 16 GBP, photography and video taking is mostly permitted inside. 

Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland from its position on the Castle Rock. The castle stands upon the plug of an extinct volcano, which is estimated to have risen about 350 million years ago during the lower Carboniferous period. The Castle Rock is the remains of a volcanic pipe, which cut through the surrounding sedimentary rock before cooling to form very hard dolerite, a type of basalt. Subsequent glacial erosion was resisted by the dolerite, which protected the softer rock to the east, leaving a crag and tail formation. The summit of the Castle Rock is 130 masl, with rocky cliffs to the south, west and north, rising to a height of 80 metres above the surrounding landscape.
