EDINBURGH CASTLE

 
 



CASTLE PLAN

EDINBURGH CASTLE

FOREWELL BATTERY

This battery is a continuation of the Half Moon Battery and defends the Eastern end of the Castle. Rebuilt in 1544 on an approximate line of the old medieval defences then heightened in 1573 after the Lang Siege.

It was reconstructed further in the 17th century and is now armed with six iron guns made during the Napoleonic Wars about 1810.
