Edinburgh Scotland

Edinburgh Scotlands Capital in November 2011 was the first stop on our road trip to Glasgow through the Scottish highlands.  Incidentally in the pub shown above I spent all my time looking at the blond not the band.

Edinburgh Castle.

Edinburgh Scotlands Capital Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age (2nd century AD), although the nature of the early settlement is unclear. There has been a royal castle on the rock since at least the reign of David I in the 12th century .

Greyfriars Bobby Greyfriars Bobby was a Skye Terrier who became known in 19th-century Edinburgh for supposedly spending 14 years guarding the grave of his owner until he died himself on 14 January 1872.
