  Ediinburgh Castle - One O'Clock Gun
by stevezero

The firing of a gun at 1 o'clock, has long been a tradition at the castle. It's original purpouse wwas to act as a precise time signal for boats in the harbour of Leith, on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
It is now fired prely for the tourists and to keep the tradition alive,
