Absolutely loved Edinburgh and the Castle is it's crowning glory. So much history, incredibly interesting. We didn't even mind the gift shops, especially the one where we bought some lovely whiskey liquer. The views at night from the castle are amazing.

It is definitely worth the climb you have to make to climb to the castle. The inclines are very steep. There are some elevators but you have to ask for the use of the Lift. The crown jewels are worth seeing, the views are outstanding. There is a great deal of Scottish history depicted through out the castle and several gift shops on the grounds.

It's Edinburgh Castle - what more to say! It's amazing to hear the history and the views are incredible. If you are in Edinburgh, you have to go the castle. Beware of peak times.

A must see in Edinburgh. Very busy, but well staffed and interesting historical displays. Most are surprised to learn it was a military facility that is still in use.

This must-see site of Edinburgh is not off limits for those who cannot walk distances. The uphill walk can be avoided by taking the curtesy car located to the right of the moat. While the central castle area is not wheelchair friendly, there is still much that can be seen without climbing flights of stairs.
