Lighting the Jubilee Beacon at Edinburgh Castle…


With more than 4000 Jubilee beacons being lit around the world to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

It was the turn of Edinburgh to light their beacon at the stunning venue of Edinburgh Castle.

I had to be there for 10pm tonight, as I walked up the empty esplanade on my own and knocked on the big castle doors, I was pointed up to Mons Meg, it was a eerie walk up as usually when I visit the Castle it is awash with tourists from all over the world.

Over to General Nick Eeles, Governor of Edinburgh Castle who had the honor of lighting the flame.

Below after it was lit the sunset was stunning with a few onlookers admiring the beacon.
