Hello Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle

A view from the Royal Mile to Edinburgh Castle. One of the buildings on the left is a brewery but used to be a school and, if you look closely, still has the name carved in to the stone at the top.

The view (left) from the square outside the ED.

A model of Edinburgh Castle displayed inside one of the rooms.

Photos as I walked around the castle and views from it of Edinburgh.

An interesting little aspect - a dogs graveyard. A place where all the mascots and military dogs were buried.

One of the oldest buildings in all of Edinburgh is little St. Margarets Chapel, and it really is little, a dozen people inside would make the place feel crowded! And believe it or not weddings still take place here.

There is a Prisoners of War (POW) exhibit reconstructed to reflect how things were, but i think you need to add a lot more dirt and hammocks since I doubt it was as clean or spacious as my photos shows. As you walk through you can hear excerpts of conversations of past prisoners.

Actually I'm surprised I didn't take more photos, esp ones of Mons Meg or the time gun. I guess if you really wanted to see them and more you could just Google Edinburgh Castle. Sorry guys, I must have been too engrossed in the audio tour.
