Edinburgh Castle

22 Nov 2013:
We were given a free and easy day to explore Edinburgh on our own. The first place on our must-visit list: The Edinburgh castle. The entrance fee was not cheap.

the shot before we entered the castle compound
we were ready to get in after purchasing the tickets
took a shot of the entrance after our entrance through the gate
checked the entrance fees here
once inside, the first thing was to get the view of Edinburgh
Scotland traditional wear
the cannons
the armour
the 1 o'clock gun
fired everyday except Sundays
the first gun was fired in 1861 to provide an audible time signal for ships in the port of Leith

Next, we explored the Holyrood Palace..
