Check out this outstanding aerial tour of Edinburgh, Scotland, compliments of My Travels and his Autel Evo II Pro drone.  Just after the :15 mark, there's a great shot looking west from the Royal Mile toward Edinburgh Castle, which sits atop Castle Rock.  At the :42 mark, you'll see the National Monument of Scotland atop Calton Hill, a bit to the northeast of the castle, followed by a view of the famous Balmoral Hotel and its clock tower.  Other highlights include the Salisbury Crags in Holyrood Park (:54), the harbor (1:14), and more.    

Edinburgh Drone Tour


Droneland 2018 - Edinburgh


The jewel in Scotland’s crown is most certainly its capital city of Edinburgh. Edinburgh was the largest city in the Kingdom of Scotland for centuries, although its population is now exceeded by that of the younger city Glasgow.  In this marvelous aerial video by Droneland, the medieval and neoclassical buildings of Edinburgh nestle cozily into its hilly landscape.  Let your eyes feast on the amazing aerial views of this treasured city on the Firth of Forth, without doubt the epicenter of Scottish culture.

Contributor Ian Appleton created this beautiful aerial video of the Forth Bridge, the most famous span in Scotland.  Opened in 1890, the cantilevered rail bridge spans the Firth of Forth, the estuary of the River Forth on which the city of Edinburgh sits.  With a total length of almost 2.5k meters (just under 8.1k ft.), it was the longest cantilever bridge when it opened, and is still the second-longest today after Canada's Quebec Bridge.  The Forth Bridge has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.  

Arthur's Seat



Tom Durnfo...

If you thought Scotland was all about castles, lochs, and moors, think again.  Here is an amazing drone video from Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano in the region's capital city of Edinburgh.  It's part of Holyrood Park, which lies just to the east of Edinburgh Castle.  The volcano is a popular hiking spot, rising to a peak elevation of about 250 meters (just over 820 ft.).  The video, which shows Arthurs Seat as well as some of the surrounding parts of the city, was created using a DJI Mavic Pro Zoom drone.
