Edinburgh Castle's western defences

The Western Defences at Edinburgh Castle was an exposed part of the castle that was developed in the 17th century to accommodate the expanding garrison as well as offering extra protection for this side of the castle. This area is generally closed off during the winter months due to the hostile conditions in what is still a very exposed part of the castle.
