Edinburgh – Visiting Edinburgh Castle

Today seems like a good day to write about my recent trip to Edinburgh, after all the referendum is happening today and history is being made. When I went to the castle referendum fever was definitely in the air especially considering all the history in a place like that.

Like every other day of my trip to Scotland, the weather was glorious, the queues minimal, and the views spectacular. I have been to many historic buildings, both here and abroad. Never somewhere quite like this though. Just look at these views.

It has to be one of the coolest places I have ever visited. And as an added bonus the Crown Jewels are also housed in the Castle, though we weren’t allowed to take pictures of them. I love Edinburgh Castle and have to mention the gift shop. They had some amazing Scottish honey for sale, but as I flew into Scotland I couldn’t take any liquids back and honey counts as a liquid. So I already want to go back via train or car so I can bring some food stuffs back home.
