Atop Edinburgh Castle

A view of our flat as we ascend the castle. We are on the first floor, not street level. Our building has the red door.

In Edinburgh Castle, which is a working military post, here is a statue of a deserving field marshall. 

The castle is impossibly old...I forget which century, but Robert the Bruce had it destroyed after he won it from the English invaders. Here is a relatively new addition. 

This is Mons Meg and Lindsey. She scared away any further invaders. 

The views of the city were quite lovely indeed. Here is Old Town Edinburgh from the parapets of the castle.
