Edinburgh Castle – 1965

We’ve seen the view from Edinburgh Castle a few times already. But this is the first one of the castle itself. From this angle it doesn’t look that big, even though it dominates the hill it is on.

This photo dates from September 1965. It’s interesting to see that the castle is being guarded by soldiers. With the one saluting the car you have to wonder who is driving in. The kid in the middle in the gray coat has a great cheeky look on his face too. Even though he’s the only one not looking at the castle.
