My husband and I had seen the Museum last year and that was superb! We couldn't get into the Castle because Prince Charles was there. So this year we went and boy were we happy we did!
The grounds are Beautiful, the Castle is great we loved having the audio guide which had lots of good information about everything! We felt the best part of the tour for us was Mary Stewart's (Mary Queen Of Scots) residence which is the oldest part of the Castle in Holyrood. There is all sorts of interesting items that did belong to her and her family. Its amazing that they still have these items after all these years...give yourself plenty of time to go through lots of stuff you can miss if you rush. My husband and I did the Castle tour and the Garden Tour. The garden tour is spectacular and you can walk through the ruins of the Abbey which is a wonderful experience. There are also spectacular views of Arthur's Seat as well. There is a Tea room there and very clean bathrooms. Worth every cent!
