Old and New Towns of Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle is a fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. It is in the care of historic Scotland, and is Scotland's most-visited paid tourist attraction. As the backdrop to the annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo it has become a recognizable symbol of Edinburgh and of Scotland. The Castle is a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site “Old and New Towns of Edinburgh” inscribed in 1995. Thanks to Jean from China, who lives in Edinburgh and sent me this beautiful postcard!

(Updated on 26/11/2013) Another card received from Jean which shows Dugald Stewart Monument and view from Calton Hill. Thanks again!
