Calton Hill

Calton Hill is one of Edinburgh’s beautiful ancient volcanoes topped with an array of historic monuments, each with their own story to tell. Only a short walk away from the school, Calton Hill is a popular spot for students to visit where you can enjoy stunning views of Edinburgh spanning out in every direction.

Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle sits majestically in the centre of Scotland’s capital city, and is even visible from some of the classrooms at the school! Inside you can see the oldest crown jewels in the British Isles, the Stone of Destiny, the traditional one o’clock gun, the oldest building in Edinburgh, and even a graveyard created, especially for the royal family’s dogs!

Holyrood Palace

Holyrood Palace 

The Palace of Holyroodhouse (or Holyrood Palace, as it is popularly known), marks the end of the historic Royal Mile. Elegant and well-kept, the palace is still in use by today’s Royal family and you can spend hours exploring the vast rooms and grounds, from Mary, Queen of Scots’ chamber to the picturesque remains of Holyrood Abbey. If you're lucky, you may even see the Queen.
