Edinburgh Castle

Today, I visited the famous Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. It was built in medieval times, around the 12th century and sits on Castle Rock overlooking the city. Edinburgh Castle was involved in the War of Scottish Independence (yes, the one with William Wallace!) and withstood numerous sieges, including one that lasted two years. The architecture in the castle and the rest of this city is incredible. It is best described through pictures, from both the castle and the surrounding area:
