PHOTO – Edinburgh honours the Queen’s birthday

Today we attended Edinburgh Castle  to see the Queen’s birthday being honoured.  At 12pm, a 21 gun salute was fired in front of a large crowd. 

It was a great event to witness (albeit rather noisy) and an army band supplied the music before and after the short ceremony.

Some photos of the event are below and and you can look at our short video of 3 rounds being fired.

The next 21 gun salute will be in May and details are listed on the Edinburgh Castle website.
