As everything in Edinburgh, looked after and an absolutely delight for a walking...hard to imagine that once there was a lake where the "witches" were thrown in...

What a beautiful place to wander through, spring flowers and the birds were singing and the snow was blowing around my ankles. I would recommend stopping off in the cafe of the Scottish National Gallery for coffee and warmth, then a trip up the Playfair steps to the castle. Perfect

A really nice place to walk and take a relaxed stroll... but maybe not so much when it's cold like it is now. I can imagine the place and how beautiful it would be in late spring and in summer.. Not a must-visit place but since it's so central, it wouldn't hurt to just have a look.

Covered in building work at the moment, though it didn't look like anything was really happening. The gardens are probably nice enough but even the fountain was turned off. Hopefully they'll be finished by summer

It was raining so our judgment is nit fare I think. The gardens were nice but if it were dry they could be maybe great.
