Edinburgh Castle, Scotland (Day 1)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Truth be told, we went to so many castles in Scotland that after awhile they looked all the same, except for Stirling Castle where they spruced it up with furniture and characters walking throughout the estate. Edinburgh Castle was at one end of the Royal Mile, opposite the more popular Holyrood Castle. It is located on top of the hill and after a slow arduous climb in cold wet weather, we obediently picked up an audio guide explored the castle. Despite the weather, the castle was populated with tourists from all places.

It is also the place where the annual Military Tattoo is held in August. At first I thought it was a really cool tattoo parlour located within a castle but turned out it was a military parade of pipes and and drums by the Scottish Regiment.
A brief history of the castle can be found here.
