... of heraldry. On the way up Castle Hill we saw the de-consecrated Tollbooth Kirk which is now used as the headquarters for the Edinburgh Festival which starts next week. That is the festival where the Tattoo takes place, a three week long competition for military bands from all over the world. We also saw and heard a bagpiper on the way up Castle Hill.

We had (another) pint at the adjacent Greyfriars Bobby pub and reflected on our love for dogs - and how much we missed ours back home in the States.

We then walked back up to Edinburgh Castle and went through on a self-guided tour of the interior and Scottish National War Museum. The castle is ...
