You can pop up here to get some fantastic views of Edinburgh without having to pay to get into the castle. It's worth a visit just to enjoy the sights.

“expensive”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

You can se the castle from outside, inside is all new and really expensive. Not really worth it. The only original site is the chapel, which is reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally small. The guides are nice.

“The Centre of the City?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Edinburgh Castle is a real castle. Stepping up to the Castle Rock you can feel the history all round you. Magnificent views across the city and Forth.
Just teems with pure history.
