Meet your guide at 124 High Street in front of Starbucks to join the Castle Tour. Skip the often long entry line and proceed directly into the castle for your 1.5-hour walking tour.
During the walking tour, learn the secrets of this famous castle, including seeing one of the world’s few official dog cemeteries and the smallest shrine in the world. Walk through Crown Square, the main courtyard of the castle. See the Crown Jewels of Scotland, including the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish monarchs. Visit the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and the National War Museum, which enables you to learn more about battles that have shaped Scottish history.
After the conclusion of your walking tour, you are free to stay and explore the castle independently for as long as you like.
