Visiting Scotland for the first time with my family. We've always wanted to visit the castle. It was fascinating and the views of the city are great. This trigpoint appears to be in excellent condition.

Edinburgh Castle stands atop the volcanic Castle Rock in the Old Town of Edinburgh. The flagstaff still stands on a small six stage tower in the Royal Palace part of the fortress. Considering the security defending the Honours of Scotland it seemed a bit pointless requesting permission to access the flagstaff tower roof to see if the roof bolt was still there. There are fabulous views from various parts of the castle grounds over the city to the surrounding coast and hills. Distant snowy peaks can be seen to the north west. Naturally it is a Grade A listed building and is at the heart of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site. Castle Rock is also part of Arthur’s Seat Volcano SSSI.

Viewed first from Johnstone Terrace and then from the entrance gate to the castle. Extortionate entry fee - toured shop part-way in without buying anything. Ach! :)
