What travelers say:

Miles Mount Battery (Mills Mount Battery), there is a famous cannon here, it has a very practical name: One o'clock gun. The old function of this 1 o'clock cannon was to check the time for sailors moored on the Firth of Forth, and fired on time at 1 o'clock every afternoon. Although people no longer need to check the time with the sound of the cannons, it still maintains the tradition. Except for a few holidays, the sound of the cannons can still be heard at one o'clock every afternoon. When we arrived, we were already crowded with crowds of onlookers. We saw the grand opening of the cannon at 1 o'clock from a distance. Finally, we had the luck to take a group photo. We left with satisfaction. Now this place has become a tourist attraction for friends from all over the world. , Edinburgh is no longer lonely under the guardianship of Edinburgh Castle day and night.
