Castle

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Historic Environment Scotland should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Historic Environment Scotland,

Good evening,

I was at Edinburgh Castle today 4th October 2018 when I overheard Police Officers asking if they may take a photo from the esplanade for their Social Media account. The staff refused stating that permission was needed from the managers and media team.

I was very disappointed in the attitude of the staff who seemed overzealous.

Please provide the following:

Any policy on the taking of photographs of the esplanade of the castle.

Any internal documents relating to this incident?

I was in a hurry otherwise I would have complained.

Yours faithfully,

John Scott
