Edinburgh is a great city. Architecture, restaurants, history. Edinburgh castle is by far the most magnificent site to see. It sits upon this large volcanic rock and it's huge. Great view of the city from it. Unfortunately when we visited many parts of the castle were closed for renovation, but there were still many areas to see. The audio tour was helpful and interesting, but I wouldn't say you necessarily need it for this castle. The crown jewels were a joy to see. As well as the history behind them. The castle is at one end of the Royal Mile so it makes it very convenient to see. We spent about 3 hours touring the castle which I think was more than enough time and allowed to see and hear every exhibit that we wanted to. We had the Explorer Pass which allowed us to skip the line, which if we went in the morning would have been a real big help. But by the mid afternoon there was no line to get in/buy tickets.
