The Duke of Edinburgh has been honoured with a 21 Gun Royal Salute in the capital to mark his 91st birthday.
At noon on Monday the 40th Regiment Royal Artillery fired the special salute from Edinburgh Castle to celebrate the birthday of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.
The event was the final time that the regiment carries out such a salute as the regiment is being put into suspended animation later this year.
Before this the Regiment will Parade in Edinburgh on June 22 at Edinburgh Castle.
Commanding Officer of 40th Regiment Lieutenant Colonel Baz Bennett said: "It is with great honour that personnel from 40th Regiment Royal Artillery (The Lowland Gunners) will be conducting the Royal Salute in Edinburgh, to mark the Duke of Edinburgh's 91st birthday.
"The occasion reaffirms the regiment's Scottish heritage, particularly our links to the fine city of Edinburgh.
"This will be the last time the regiment will fire a Royal Salute due to the fact that 40th Regiment will be placed into suspended animation later this year.
"It is important to consider that 110 personnel from 40th Regiment have just returned from Afghanistan where they served with distinction."
