Edinburgh Castle


Edinburgh Castle, Scotland, has been recorded as a royal residence since the 11th century. The Palace, on the highest part of the Castle rock, dates from the 19th century and later, and contains the regalia of Scotland: crown, sceptre and sword of state, and now also the Stone of Destiny. The oldest building is St Margaret’s Chapel, a small Romanesque building, restored many times. The Castle also contains the National War Museum of Scotland and the Scottish National War Memorial, 1927, designed by Robert Lorimer. The Esplanade was built as a parade ground in the early 19th century and is now the scene of the annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
