Hootsuite Inc. : ‘And the Castle is wonderful to look upon,
Which has withstood many angry tempests in years bygone;
And the rock it’s built upon is rugged and lovely to be seen
When the shrubberies surrounding it are blown full green.’

McGonagall, reputedly the world’s worst poet .

Hootsuite Inc. : Happy #PoetsDay

Robert Burns wrote Address to Edinburgh in 1786, where we wrote about the city and the castle. We do like the below line from his poem, we find it quite fitting.

Edina! Scotias darling seat!
All hail thy palaces and towrs
