The Prisoners' Walk

"I had a friend, Mr Clark, who was a caretaker at Edinburgh Castle.  He took me down into the castle vaults and into the area that was used to hold French Prisoners in the mid-late 1700's.  I don't think this area was open to the general public. 

I took this shot in 1970 from what he called the prisoners' walk.  I thought it might be of interest as it's taken from a different perspective than one usually see's from the castle."
