The two main Scottish cities are very different from each other. While Edinburgh It has a greater manor - with its imposing castle, its medieval downtown streets and its air of tourist place - Glasgow It has a more rogue touch, with an impressive urban artvery good museums of all kinds and a virtually unmatched nightlife in the United Kingdom.

Having said that, I love both.

Edinburgh is one of those cities that you can visit a dozen times and you still have places to discover. On a first visit, it is normal to visit the most tourist icons, but then you can discover beyond the skin of Edinburgh and, if you have more time, use it as a base to discover what, for me, is the great beauty of Scotland: its natural heritage.

Therefore, I am going to propose the best excursions in Edinburgh and its surroundings, with which you can discover all the secrets of much of Scotland.

Edinburgh's most iconic monument is Edinburgh Castle.

The one in Edinburgh is one of those few castles that has had military use almost to this day. Such was its size, strength and strategic position. Erected in the 12th century on a rock,which resembles a hill, has dominated, since then, the entire city.

It is located in the center of Edinburgh and can be reached by walking, while ascending the beautiful medieval streets of the Royal Mile.

Its walls contain countless stories of battles, betrayals, loves and secrets of powerful families. The best way to get to know them is to book one of Edinburgh's best excursions: the guided tour of Edinburgh Castle, and with guide in Spanish. You can do it in this link.

As I told you, the Royal Mile It groups the most impressive streets of Edinburgh, but what you might not know is that Under them a whole network of dark catacombs hides.

One of the best excursions to do in Edinburgh is the one that takes you through those gloomy catacombs and the magical Greyfriars Kirkyard Cemetery. You will do it accompanied by a really disturbing character, who will explain to you, in Spanish, the stories of murderers, witches and souls in sorrow that still roam this fearsome journey. Only suitable for brave.
