Edinburgh

Edinburgh castle is an 11th century hilltop fort complete with cannons, interesting history, the Scottish Crown Jewels , as well as the official Stone of Destiny. We enjoyed a lively exchange with our tour guide who enthusiastically shared Scottish history with us. We learned more about William Wallace (on whom the movie Braveheart is based), and Mary,  Queen of Scots, who became queen of Scotland at six days after her birth.  Edinburgh is a large bustling city that is the cultural and historical capital of Scotland.  We enjoyed great weather, a wonderful campground, with a gracious hostess.
