A trip to Scotland’s capital isn’t complete without a visit to Edinburgh Castle. Part of The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site and standing majestically on top of a 340 million year-old extinct volcanic rock, the castle is a powerful national symbol. Fascinating to explore and simply unmissable.

  • This little chapel inside the Edinburgh Castle has a great history. How it was demolished and how it became a chapel of cult again is what gives it it identity. It is a must see. 
  • The St. Margaret's Chapel is located at the Castle. It is a small and very simple chapel. However there is a very good stained glass image of St. Margaret that I liked very much. 
  • The chapel of Edinburgh Castle is perhaps the oldest part, very small and simple in structure, but extremely fascinating. Unfortunately its small size and fame lead her to be always very crowded, so the visit is less pleasant than it might be. Admission is included in the Castle.

  • This was a great place to go and visit. It was worth the money to get into, it also had a lot of information available if you wanted it. I used my phone for information, but they also had audio guides available if you wanted to use that instead. I would highly recommend seeing this castle! They have tours that you can go through as well. It has great views and allows you to be outside enjoying the Scotland air.
  • There are other castles which are better and prettier than this one. It is interesting how the castle has such a long history approx 3000 years old. However there's not much to do inside. It is considered quite expensive. They have good views over the city. The Tower of London is many times better.
  • Fantastic castle to visit, the museums and exhibitions are excellent. Worth buying ticket online in advance for access at peak times. Not ideal for young children as lots of walking, but brilliant for older kids. Also its beautiful at night!
  • A very nice place and nice views from the hills. The museum in the castle is £16 for an adult. A bit pricey for me so i did not visited. Maybe next time. Had a very good time there.
  • An incredible experience! Beautiful views, wonderfully curated exhibits and helpful staff. My wife and I could have spent many more hours here than we did. The crowds weren't too bad, especially since we went a couple days before the Military Tattoo.
