PROUDLY MADE IN SCOTLAND
Edinburgh Castle, which stands upon the remains of an extinct volcano, was built as a Royal Castle during the 12th century by David I, son of Saint Margaret of Scotland. The original buildings and defences would have been constructed from timber, although two stone buildings are documented as having existed in the 12th century. Of these, St. Margaret's Chapel is the only remaining part of the original castle. The site continued to be a royal residence until the Union of the Crowns in 1603
As one of the most important strongholds in Scotland, Edinburgh Castle was involved in many conflicts beginning with the Wars of Independence in the 14th century when The Scots and English fought for control of the castle. Many other sieges, battles and skirmishes took place at the castle walls down the centuries until the last time the castle saw military action during the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745.
From the 18th to the 19th century, Edinburgh Castle was used to hold military prisoners from Britains overseas wars. The castle became a national monument in 1814. During the 19th and 20th centuries, the castle was slowly restored. Military ceremonies began to be held there and, in 1927, part of the castle was turned into the Scottish National War Memorial.
