Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Edinburgh from its position on the summit of Castle Rock.
 There has been a royal castle here since the 12th century
 and the site continued to be a royal residence until the 
Union of the Crowns in 1603.
From the 15th century the castle's residential role declined and by the 17th century its principal role was as a military base.
Its importance as a historic monument has been recognised from the 19th century.
 Being one of the most important fortresses in 
Scotland, the Castle was involved in many historical conflicts.
