See Holyrood Palace
While Edinburgh Castle is impressive in itself, the lesser known yet still impressive palace in the city is Holyrood. This palace at the bottom of the Royal Mile is where the queen spends her visits in Edinburgh. While she doesn't come to Edinburgh often (only a few weeks per year), she does make sure to check in on all of her kingdom, and this is the place she calls home.
