    Beautifull old and historic castle, where some parts are still active. They shoot in the aire around 13.00 clock. You have free tours so dont have to pay for the audio :)

    Worth paying for! Came here after lunch; spent almost half the day here, exploring the castle grounds and the many towers, dungeons and rooms. The oldest building in Edinburgh is here! Don't miss it!

    Fantastic. The prison was especially fascinating since it held American revolutionaries.

    Buy the fast pass online as the lines can get a bit long waiting for a ticket. Try to see the Crown Jewels early if possible.

    Unlimited (nominally free) access with a Historic Scotland membership - £49/year, less when paid by monthly direct debit. Members can skip the long queues and get tickets at the smaller info centre.

    Avoid the audio tour, dull and not worth it. Instead spend time looking at the history and not rushing through like some do; the old jail cells and items built by prisoners are the most evocative.

    While the view & the surroundings are nice, the visit feels like Disneyland & was way too crowded.

    The tickets felt pricey at first, but there was a lot to see and a lot of history to learn about. The views of Edinburgh from within the castle are stunning.

    Take the free tour, only takes about 30 minutes. Very informative but not too much. Ends at the top so you can work your way back down to castle gate with what was most interesting to you. Great views

    The main reason to come in the view. The castle is a good starting point to the royal mile walk.
