With the use of your "voucher", I was able to bypass the ticket line and go right into the Visitors Center to get my entrance ticket. I did not know this before I got into line, but a ticket agent spotted the voucher and told me where to go, so I did not have to stay in that line. I was offered the auto tour or a guided tour, and with so much to see and learn, I opted for the guided tour, which run about every hour. I was not able to stay with this tour, as I got too tired and due to an previous injury at home, I opted to continue on my own. Lots of steps. The room where the Crown Jewels are kept was extremely hot. Very interesting and informative picture murals as you walk up to the crown room. No photos in crown room, not even without flash, guard on hand to enforce this rule. It took me between 2-3 hours to explore the castle and eat lunch, then I opted to visit the Princes Park and the Cemetery. Luckily, buses and taxis everywhere. I was exhausted, but great to see the old castle with all its history. It truly is a "Castle in the Sky."

Das vorausbezahlte Ticket ist außerordentlich hilfreich, da es lange Wartezeiten an der Kasse erspart. Auf dem ausgedruckten Voucher sollte noch der deutliche Hinweis erfolgen, dass das eigentliche Eintrittsticket entweder an den Serviceautomaten oder am Info-Schalter ausgedruckt werden muss.

Getting the ticket on viator allowed me to skip the lineup for tickets which was long. Also I was able to use my AMEX card on the website if you get your tickets at the castle they only accept VISA or MC

We live around a few castles and have to say in the nature of what I expected this is not a standard "castle" the history and nostalgia that surrounds this volcanic rock is very interesting along with it's military background. From the wars fought before and in the era of Robert the Bruce to those soldiers still standing true in the middle east for crown and country. This was a truly enjoyable experience.
