We didn't actually go up and see the castle but seeing it from below and how hard it would have been to try and attack it was really interesting to see. Shame that the fountain and some of the gardens were under construction but all in all a fantastic sight.

We didn't have enough time to go inside but the outside is very impressive. Great views of the city. Lots of history to read about. Worth the hike up the hill.

This is more a fort than a castle, clearly built for defense and you can catch a great view from up here overlooking Edinburgh as well as looking down on Royal Mile.

Overlooking the city, the castle is a must see for anyone visiting Edinburgh. Buy tickets in advance, get there early and as you come in, head up you the left and beat the crowds to the Crown Jewels. (The tours come around from the right). Best toilets are in the back of the coffee house (straight and to the right as you come in). Grab a ‘millionaire shortbread’ on the way out of the coffee shop (caramel, chocolate and shortbread.... need I say more?). Be sure to bring a jacket as it is always breezy up at the top!

Long queue but it moved fast - book online to beat the crowds. The castle is a great way to spend a few hours. Go on a clear day to see great views of Edinburgh.
