This statue of a Skye Terrier pays homage to the legend of a dog named Greyfriars Bobby that is said to have sat at the grave of his deceased master for 14 years, until he died himself.
The Palace of Holyroodhouse is the official Scottish residence of the royal family and has been since the 1500s. The structures on the palace ground dated back even further, to the founding of Hollyrood Abbey in 1128.
This historic and famous castle sits atop the Castle Rock precipice in the city of Edinburgh. Human occupation of the area that is now the fortress dates back to the second century AD or possibly even earlier.
