Today, was the final day of our round Scotland, Queen Victoria themed tour. We focused on the city of Edinburgh and the famous medieval castle  in particular.The latter includes 12th century chapel, Scottish Crown Jewels, Great Hall, Prison, National War Memorial, Royal Apartments, Stone of Scone, Mons Meg Cannon and more. A good portion of the day was spent here with some group members exploring the rest of the city including the Royal Mile, National Gallery and some shopping.
