Edinburgh Castle is the most important tourist attraction of the city. For centuries the castle was the seat of Scottish Kings, today it is the headquarter for the Scottish Division. Edinburgh Castle is located on a volcanic rock and dominates the skyline of the city. A visit can take up to 3 hours, but it's well worth it.
The big cannon that you see on the last photo is called Mons Meg. It weighs 6 ton and last saw action in 1681.

Hi juka14 -
Congrats on an interesting blog and some splendid photos. The selection from Edinburgh Castle particularly caught my attention - perhaps you would care to share some of them and/or a review of your visit with our travel community at trivago?
All of the very best & happy travels!

I like castles, although in my country there are only three "operating" castles. Your blog was very interesting.
