Mons Meg has been fired almost every day since 1861 at precisley one o'clock. The gun is Europes oldest surviving medievil cannon. The cannon is now in retirement at Edinburgh Castle & stands proudly beside St. Margaret's Chaplle. If you are in Edinburgh at 1 o'clock you will still here a different cannon booming out the hour. Mons Meg is still in focus today = check out the Bonnie Lassies pictured beside this geat icon.
