Edinburgh Castle


Edinburgh Castle is Scotland‘s most visited paid tourist attraction and sits upon an extinct volcano.  The castle has undergone so many attacks during it’s 1100 years of history, it is the most besieged place in Great Britain and one of the most attacked in the world!

During the 1700’s and early 1800’s, the castle vaults were used to house prisoners of war.

When I’m exploring somewhere that is seeped in so much history, I feel invigorated and energized!
