Edinburgh Castle is Edinburgh's best known and most popular attraction and one of the most visited ancient monuments in Great Britain. It has breathtaking views of Edinburgh and tons to interest young and old alike - the Great Hall and Royal Apartments, the Crown Room, the Half Moon Battery, statues of Robert the Bruce and William Wallace, and the Esplanade to name but a few. The Esplanade is also the venue of the world-renowned Military Tattoo, with its music, marching and historical re-enactments. The castle is home to Scotland's most famous cannon - a 15th-century monstrosity called Mons Meg, which is fired every day except Sunday. In a more somber corner of the castle is the Witches' Well where over 300 women were burned between 1492-1722.
