When you visit Edinburgh, its castle is a must. However the weather can turn your visit into an unpleasant experience; the first time I was there the castle was closed half way through my visit and we were all invited to leave as it was dangerous. All tickets were kindly refunded.
The prisons are claustrophobic but worth a visit. The crown jewels are very nice, and the list of all the colonies is impressive. The view of the city is of course breathtaking.
I was never there for the 1 o'clock gun, but if you can organize your visit accordingly, it may be worthwhile.
