Look up anywhere in Edinburgh's old town and you'll see Edinburgh Castle, seeming to grow out of the blackened cold volcano that forms its plinth. There's evidence of human habitation on this spot that dates back to 900 BC, and the Castle has been ...

The Edinburgh Castle is a must see. We opted to purchase advance tickets, which saved us a lot of time at the door. We spent about 3.5 hours exploring the castle on our own. There are tour guides available if you prefer a guided tour. The castle is amazing and there is so much to see. I would definitely recommend taking your time and spending at least 3 hours here. So much history and incredible views of the city from the castle.

Edinburgh Castle was fantastic. lots of crowds but with the Viator voucher we were able to bypass them all and go straight to the service desk and get our tickets and enter. The tour was good especially Mary Queen of Scotts. I loved the vistas from the castle and can see why it was the safest place in the land.

This is probably the top attraction in Edinburgh and it's easy to see why. This castle has such a long and fascinating history, and the current incarnation of it is quite a beautiful sight. There is so much to see at the castle that you'll want to spend at least half a day looking around. I also highly recommend the free tours as you get a lot of facts that you wouldn't know otherwise.

It's hard to miss Edinburgh castle when in Edinburgh -- but it is worth taking a full half day for a nice leisurely tour around. Highlights are the prisons of war exhibition and "Honours of Scotland" -- Scotland's crown jewels (try to go to this early to avoid the lines and tour groups). The views of Edinburgh are great -- try to go on a sunny day for good photo ops. We also took a great shot of out 7 year old inside Mons Meg -- one of the worlds oldest cannons.
