  1. Since 2013 I’ve been lucky to visit my son for 3 months in Edinburgh Scotland. We always visited Edinburge Castle. I’m a person that does not like ice cream ….but the ice cream outside of Edinenburgj Castle is wonderfu! l I love the castle no matter how many times I see it. …because it’s medieval and has all that history…the crown jewels the chapel all the weapons that they had used and most important the Stone of Scotland
