Tour Scotland Video One o'clock Gun Edinburgh Castle

Tour Scotland video of the One O'Clock Gun, Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh, Scotland. The 94 pound artillery weapon was provided by the Royal Artillery, and intended as an alternative to the Calton Hill Time-Ball. This other method of telling the time, positioned atop the Nelson Monument, was hindered by fog, mist or being out of the line of sight, with the definitive report of a cannon favoured over the Time-Ball.
