A high quality watercolour print.Edinburgh Castle Gatehouse
THE GATEHOUSE 1886-8
The castle's position on the volacnic rock offered protection from all sides with steep rocky faces all round and the Nor' Loch to the North. The Gatehouse, which faced the sloping town (the Royal Mile) was the most vunerable point to attack.
However, The Gatehouse, an impressive main entrance into the castle was built, not so much as an additional defence but rather for aesthetic reasons. It replaced a simple functional gate which was built in the late 17th century.
Flanking the main arched entrance stand bronze statues of two of Scotland hero freedom fighters, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, added in 1929.
At either side of the draw bridge leading to the Gatehouse is a dry ditch which dates from Oliver Cromwell times (1650's).
This is a ready to hang picture/photo frame that is perfect for wall decor, home or office decorations. It is a great gift for your relatives and friends on their Birthday, Wedding Anniversary, Christmas and other occasions.
