Welcome to Edinburgh Castle…

Yes, it was typical Scottish/England weather. Overcast, misty rain, 62* and chilly. But I didn’t let it dampen my enthusiasm in seeing this castle again and walking where Nick and I did in April of 2004. More than one time I had trouble breathing and seeing for the tears but it was a good trip down memory lane.18-6 going into the castle

After you get in and buy your ticket, this is the first gate you walk through.18-7-1 gate

And yes, it has that spiked scary iron gate.18-7 the inside gate

I love how the castle just seems to rise up from the rocks. 18-1 castle wall

One of the things that so impressed Nick when we were here 14+ years ago, was this cannon. I hope you can zoom in and read this.22 Mons Meg story
She is MASSIVE and impressive.20 Mons Meg
And look at the balls on her!! They are almost 400 pounds EACH.21 Mons Meg cannon balls

Just the dates are hard to wrap one’s head around.18-5 inside the keep
This is the line to get into see the crown jewels. It also has the Stone of Scone.
