Princes Street, Edinburgh from The Castle
Princes Street, Edinburgh from The Castle
This photograph was taken mainly to record the beautiful Cemetery, in the foreground of the picture, where Soldiers' Dogs are buried. It has been used since the 1840's to bury the remains of officers pet dogs and also regimental mascots. As the castle is a fortress it was for periods of time, during battle, completely cut off from the rest of the world. So it was deemed necessary to have a burial place for dogs. It is said one of the dogs still haunts the castle. On guided tours of the castle the burial ground can only be viewed from above.
