    Another hill. Very hilly city, reminds me of home in San Francisco. That's pretty much where the similarities stop though.
  2. Front of the castle.

    The sign reads: "No one provokes me without punishment." 😳
  3. I'm Scottish and a Gryffindor, so I think we can say JK loved Scotland most.

    He helped the military at the frontline of battle by chasing after cannon balls. His collar has a medal of bravery on it.
  5. Queen Mary of Scots is bae.

    She killed a lot of people and also maybe (probably) her husband. And was made queen when she was six days old. So. #goals

    I'm so cute, honestly.
  9. You can't take any pictures of the Crown Jewels.
    Bummer.
  10. All in all, I learned how badass the Scottish military is.
    There are a lot of museums inside of the castle, so expect to be there for a while. And get some whiskey at the tasting room up top! I had a delicious whiskey cream liquor that I can't stop thinking about.
  11. Tickets are around 18£, and you should definitely buy them in advance.
  12. Go forth and conquer all the lands.
