One Week in Scotland (I). Edinburgh

In May I have visited Edinburgh, Highlands and Glasgow - this is Scotland.

 Going to Edinburgh truly did make me feel as if I was like traveling back in time, and it's encouraging to know that the city wishes to remain that way.

High on the volcanic crag sits Edinburgh Castle, one of the most ancient European castles. Though much of the castle exists from the late medieval ages, there has existed a fortress on the crag for well over a thousand years.

The Palace of Holyroodhouse, commonly referred to as Holyrood Palace, is the official residence of the Monarch of the United Kingdom in Scotland. Located at the bottom of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, at the opposite end to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace has served as the principal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scots since the 16th century, and is a setting for state occasions and official entertaining.
