Trip Diary – April/May 2017 – Day 28 – Edinburgh and the Castle

Once you get near the City Centre area of Edinburgh, you can’t miss the Castle. It sits on top of a large volcanic mountain in the middle of the city, and is visible from all directions. Sheer volcanic walls have protected it for centuries, making it one of a small group of castles that was never breached in time of war.

When Queen Elizabeth goes on vacation in England, she goes to Windsor. When she vacations in Scotland, which is much less often, she goes to her palace at Hollyrood House, west of the city along the bay.
