Let’s begin to explore the famous historic castle.
It is surrounded by Old and New Towns of Edinburgh and part of main attraction in the city. You won’t miss it.
Nice scenery that I can’t stop myself of taking photos here.
Even though the castle is huge, you won’t lost inside.
What about inside the castle?
This is just part of it. There are many more that I didn’t take the photos.
This was the oldest part of the castle, St Margaret’s Chapel, that dated fom the 12th century.We had walked the whole castle and took us 4 hours to finish it. It’s worthwhile.
Let’s have a break. We went to the cafe to have our hi-tea in the castle. That’s awesome. Isn’t it?
