EDINBURGH CASTLE

WE START OUR VISIT WHERE THE CITY DID — AT THE EDINBURGH CASTLE,
THE FORTIFIED BIRTHPLACE OF THE CITY OVER A THOUSAND YEARS AGO.
THIS IMPOSING SYMBOL OF EDINBURGH SITS BOLDLY ON A ROCK HIGH ABOVE THE CITY.
WHILE THE CASTLE HAS BEEN BOTH A FORT AND A ROYAL RESIDENCE
SINCE THE 11th CENTURY, MOST OF THE BUILDINGS TODAY ARE FROM ITS MORE RECENT USE AS A MILITARY GARRISON.
CROWDS GATHER AS, TRADITIONALLY, EACH DAY AT 1:00,
THE BIG GUN IS FIRED, GIVING THE SHIPS IN THE PORT SOMETHING TO SET THEIR CLOCKS BY.
WHY 1:00 AND NOT NOON?
IT COSTS THE FRUGAL SCOTS ELEVEN FEWER ROUNDS. YOUR ADMISSION COMES WITH A FINE GUIDED TOUR.
THE SCOTTISH NATIONAL WAR MEMORIAL COMMEMORATES SCOTTISH SOLDIERS LOST IN WORLD WAR I AND IN BRITISH WARS SINCE.
TO FATHOM THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS PLACE TO SCOTTISH PEOPLE,
CONSIDER THAT ONE OUT OF EVERY THREE ADULT SCOTTISH MEN DIED IN WORLD WAR I.
EACH BAY IS DEDICATED TO A PARTICULAR SCOTTISH REGIMENT.
