Edinburgh Castle

Down light on Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town.
Viewed from Salibury Crags.

When you come to Scotland and visit Edinburgh Castle you will see why the early inhabitants of the area we now call Edinburgh, made their first settlements here, in what is now the city of Edinburgh. People have always sought a safe refuge, and the volcanic rock that forms the base of Edinburgh Castle, has always afforded the ultimate safe and defensive position in Edinburgh.

Thank you to Jinty to send me this awesome postcard.

I never forgot the moment I set eyes on Edinburgh Castle.
