Edinburgh Castle is an ancient stronghold which dominates the sky-line of the city of Edinburgh from its position atop Castle Rock. It is Scotland 's second most visited tourist attraction. Human habitation of the site is dated back as far as the 9th century BC. As it stands today though, few of the castle's structures pre- date the Lang Siege of the 16th century, with the notable exception of St Margaret 's Chapel, the oldest surviving building in Edinburgh, which dates from the early 12th century.As with all castles , Edinburgh's fortress has been a centre of military activity. As an ancient fortress Edinburgh Castle is one of the few that still has a military garrison, albeit for largely ceremonial and administrative purposes. The New Barrack Block is now home to the official headquarters of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and 52 Infantry Brigade, as well as home to the regimental museum of the Royal Scots and Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. The Governor of Edinburgh Castle is Major General David McDowall, GOC of the British Army 's 2nd Division . The Governor of the Castle has always been the head of the Army in Scotland. Direct administration of the castle by the War Office only came to an end in 1923 when the army formally moved to the city's new Redford Barracks. Nevertheless, the Castle continues to have a strong connection with the Army. Sentries still stand watch at the castle gatehouse after opening hours , with responsibility for guarding the Honours of Scotland.
Fyvie Castle in the village of Fyvie, is a castle near Turriff in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.The earliest parts of Fyvie Castle date from the 13th century - some sources claim it was built in 1211 by William the Lion . Fyvie was the site of an open -air court held by Robert the Bruce , and Charles I lived there as a child . Following the Battle of Otterburn in 1390 , it ceased to be a royal stronghold and instead fell into the possession of five successive families - Preston, Meldrum, Seton , Gordon and Leith - each of whom added a new tower to the castle.Inside, the castle stronghold features a great wheel stair, a display of original arms and armour, and a particularly fine collection of portraits. Manus O'Cahan and Montrose fought a successful minor battle against the Covenant Army at Fyvie Castle on August 24th 1644 . Following Victorian trends, the grounds and adjoining Loch Fyvie were landscaped
