We went here last Monday (03rd Dec) because we were on a short break to Edinburgh and because my husband has never been to Edinburgh before and had only ever heard of Craigmillar Castle from my childhood stories, I persuaded him to drive up there (fully believing we'd only be able to look at it because we had our Border Collie, Ella with us) but he persuaded me to go in and ask - I doubtfully asked the lovely lady in the shop and to my delight she said it was fine to take our dog in with us, so long as we took responsibility for her and her safety (and everyone else's) due to tight spiral staircases, low walls, steep sheer drops and the icy conditions of the day.
I was totally delighted and as usual I had a wonderful time there (this really IS my favourite place in the world!) and it really made our wedding anniversary break absolutely special.
Love the castle and love the staff - every time I go, there is always a warm, smiley welcome and the staff are just as lovely when you leave.
Thankyou everyone at Craigmillar Castle for always being so nice but even more so for allowing us to take our dog in last Monday (although I had to put her mess in the ladies loo bin as there were no other bins - sorry but I really didn't fancy driving all the way to Manchester straight after Craigmillar Castle with a bag of dog mess, lol)
Seriously though, next time I'm back in Edinburgh, I'll be back spending more money with you :)
- talking of money, people who complain about the entrance fee should remember that the money we pay, helps to preserve this wonderful and beautiful building and when I used to visit and play there as a little girl, there weren't even any toilet facilities x
