Edinburgh Castle and The Grassmarket by Jonathan Wheeler
Perched on an extinct volcano, Edinburgh Castle is an instantly recognizable fortress and powerful national symbol. Part of both the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh, human habitation of the site dates back as far as the 9th century BC. There has been a royal fortress on the site since the 12th century AD. Today, Edinburgh Castle is in the care of Historic Scotland, and is Scotland's most visited paid tourist attraction.
This painting shows the castle from The Grassmarket area of Edinburgh, located southeast and below the Castle. The Grassmarket was in use from 1477 to 1911 as one of Edinburgh's main markets for horses and cattle.
