Edinburgh has been Scotland’s capital from the 14th century, and has developed into one of Britain’s most iconic cities.
The city’s famous landmark – Edinburgh Castle, was built in the 12th century on the site of a 700 million year old extinct volcano called Castle Rock. The castle is one of Edinburgh’s most popular tourist attractions and is also host to The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo which is held in the castle’s esplanade every year.
According to history, Edinburgh was the very first place in the world to have an established organised municipal fire brigade. The Edinburgh Fire Engine Establishment was formed by James Braidwood in 1824.
