PRODUCT: Family trip
STV has teamed up with Historic Environment Scotland to give one lucky winner the chance to win a family trip to Edinburgh!

The prize includes return train travel to Edinburgh and two nights stay at the Apex Grassmarket hotel sharing a family room on a bed and breakfast basis.

Not only that, you and your family will receive admission into Edinburgh Castle and enjoy your very own private guided tour!

Edinburgh Castle is Scotland’s number one paid-for tourist attraction and is a powerful national symbol, attracting visitors from all around the world. Situated on a 340 million year old volcano and boasting panoramic views across the city, it dominates Edinburgh’s skyline and captivates visitors.

The stronghold is the most besieged place in Britain, providing sanctuary and security for many of Scotland’s kings and queens. Today countless treasures are protected by the castle walls. Marvel at the nation’s Crown Jewels, smell the gun powder after the one o’clock gun fires and taste the best of Scottish produce – all in this magnificent fortress.

Historic Environment Scotland is the lead public body established to care for and promote Scotland’s historic environment. They are the largest operator of visitor attractions in Scotland with over 300 sites across the country, 77 of which are staffed, including Edinburgh Castle - the flagship property.
