The Castle is very difficult to reach without a car due to bus routes. There are however around ten parking bays rigt at the door of the Visitor Centre. The lady in there when we arrived was very helpful.
A video would be nice on arrival, but I appreciate that with properties run by Historic Scotland there are certain constraints which simply cannot be worked round.
However, once you've made the very short walk to the castle there are no signs whatsoever to guide you round in the best way. Safety wise the ropes which hug one of the stone stair cases could surely be utilised on other castle stairs.
The toilets are at the side of the castle. In a hurry? You'll need to guess your direction and move quickly!
The view from the rooftop alone is in my view one of the best in the world. None more so than in May when there is doubtless lots of bloom to see, and also the autumn with the colours on show.
