My favourite part of the S1 tour was seeing Edinburgh Castle. This was because we got to see the one o’clock gun go off; St Margaret’s Chapel which was really old; and finally the Scottish Crown Jewels. My second favourite part was going down the Cowgate as this was where Hibernian FC started off!
We enjoyed going to see the War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle because it was cool to see who fought for our country and to pay our respects. Going to St Giles Cathedral was also good! When we walked down the Royal Mile we ended up see the woman who had the most piercings in the world; apparently her name was Elaine Davidson.

One of my favourite parts of the S1 trip around Edinburgh was going into the Greyfriar’s Kirkyard because Grayfriars Bobby was buried there and so were lots of other interesting people; it was also really unnerving being there which made it fun. I also enjoyed seeing the 1 O’clock gun at the Castle. It was very loud and unexpected; even though we knew it would go off at and second.
Our favourite part of the S1 trip around Edinburgh was walking down the Royal Mile. There were loads of interesting things to see such as St Giles Cathedral which was amazing. Going around the Castle was also really fun as it gave me a chance to see the whole of Edinburgh from high up and it had lots of interesting history to learn! Seeing the statue of Grayfriars Bobby was really good as the story of Bobby was interesting. He went to his owner’s grave every night for 14 years which was incredible.
