    "Arthur is a high peak and a huge tilted position, the place is also a legendary display of King Arthur, the scenery is OK, you can see some natural scenery far away from the top of the mountain, traffic is also relatively developed."
    Reasons to Recommend: Arthur's Seat is a mountain in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, Scotland, with a height of 186 meters. Many tourists come to Arthur's Seat to climb the mountain, usually to watch the sunrise in the morning, or come here to watch the sunset in the evening. There is also a stone on the top of the mountain, which records the distance and bearing to several other landmarks, such as St Andrews and so on. And looking at the sea to the east from the top of the mountain, the scenery is very spectacular, it is simply beautiful.

    Forth Bridge

    4.5/5
    60 Reviews
    Edinburgh

    "Fosbridge is one of Edinburgh's main roads to the Highlands. After crossing the bridge, the scenery is the continuous hills (since I really don't get high, so I call them all) and the canyon. When I come back from the highlands, there is a view platform here for taking pictures. There seems to be a toilet next to it. I didn't use it. Not particularly impressed, there should be an open-air cafe after that, with a great view"
    Reasons to Recommend: Forth Bridge is 2.5 kilometers long and was designed by John Fuller and Benjamin Baker. Cantilevered steel beams are used to support steel frames with two spans of 46 meters each, and a total of about 58,000 tons of steel is used, so the bridge looks very spectacular from the outside. The two bridges have a suspension cable and a bracket, and the railway bridge with the bracket as the main body is supported by an arch, which is very creative.

    "The Britannia is a large sailing ship, this ship has a very old history, the whole ship has been designed and built for a long time, there are some pretty good views here, the boat is large, moored on the edge of the port. [View] very good"
    Reasons to Recommend: Britannia was built by John Brown & Co. Ltd in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. It was launched on April 16, 1953 by Queen Elizabeth II, and the maiden voyage was on January 11, 1954. It was designed to be converted into a hospital ship during wartime, but was never actually converted. Britannia has been used by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family on 696 foreign visits and 272 visits within British waters. In 1981, Prince Charles and Princess Diana used the Britannia for their honeymoon. In 1986, he also rescued 1,000 refugees from the civil war in Aden. In 1997, due to operating costs, the Labour government announced the retirement of the Britannia after it came to power. The Britannia has traveled more than 1 million miles. After decommissioning, it was permanently moored at the Marine Terminal at the Port of Leith in Edinburgh, Scotland, and became a tourist attraction. The decoration of the ship is not ostentatious, but it does not lose its elegant temperament. Visitors can buy tickets to board the ship to visit the elegant suites, crew quarters and the eye-catching Royal Deck Tea Room, enjoy the beautiful scenery of the sea, or enjoy traditional British style on the deck. Afternoon tea and cakes, feel the life of the royal family when they sailed to sea on a yacht.
