And then we walked up to the Edinburgh Castle for a tour.

LP: "The brooding, black crags of Castle Rock, rising above the western end of Princes St, are the very reason for Edinburgh's existence. This rocky hill was the most easily defended hilltop on the invasion route between England and central Scotland, a route followed by countless armies from the Roman legions of the 1st and 2nd centuries AD to the Jacobite troops of Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745."

Here we are at the top of the hill and you can't see the brooding black crags but they are there.
