The castle is most-visited tourist attraction in Scotland, and no trip to Edinburgh is complete without a visit at the castle. Not everyone knows that Edinburgh Castle is also an active military base.
I recommend a visit, especially if you’re interested in history.
And who wouldn’t want to have a romantic photograph with the majestic Edinburgh Castle in the background?
The photograph below was taken in the Vennel, a staircase which will lead you from the Grassmarket to Lauriston Place. The Vennel offers the most breathtaking view of the Edinburgh Castle, it’s a place not to be missed!
Edinburgh Castle was built on the top of extinct volcano.
St Margaret’s Chapel is the oldest building in Scotland. It is now also used to host weddings; it can accommodate small ceremonies of maximum 30 people.
You can get married at Edinburgh Castle if you’re planning the ceremony or wedding reception between 1st October and 31st May! The Castle offers a few venues depending on how big your wedding will be. It’s also an amazing location for a secret proposal (I have photographed one at St Margaret’s Chapel, it was epic), but also anniversary and engagement photoshoots.
For wedding photoshoots or any other organised photography session a permit and fees may apply, you can find more information here.
