OK - first - buy the scottish pass. You get this castle & several other places for free & skip the queues. I had been there twice before & got right in. This time, it was worse than Disney world! 2 hours just to get TO THE TICKET AREA with another 1 from there. I bought the pass while in line & we jumped right in.
The castle is so cool just jutting out of the volcanic rock. Make sure you go into the prison area, St. Margaret's chapel & eat at the Jacobite Cafe. Great food. Also, they usually have whiskey tasting in their whiskey shop. DO IT! Not the type of royal castle you may be thinking of, but well worth it!
