Greyfriars' Bobby Story
Greyfriars' Bobby was a Skye terrier that sat at
his master's grave daily for fourteen years, from his master's death
in 1858. He used to leave the grave only for food, recognising the one
o'clock gun his signal to go for his lunch.
The one o' clock gun marks
its 150th anniversary in 2011. It has been fired from Edinburgh Castle
to indicate the time to shipping in the Firth of Forth and others.
The gun is fired daily, except on Sundays, Good Friday and Christmas Day.
