    Make sure to do research on the way to the top...there are multiple routes so one you take depends on the comfort of the people
    The view from the top is too good and one should go there if one is at Edinburgh

    I have to admit, our visit to the Brittania was really for my wife's benefit. It was something I knew she would be extremely interested in - turns out I found it quite interesting as well.
    The size and scope were surprising. While I knew it was certainly a larger than most yacht, I had no idea of its true size, the number of crew to maintain and operate it nor the engineering feat it truly is. The displays are excellent, the tour is well laid out and logical in order. The audio guides are extremely helpful.
    All in all, a very educational and enjoyable experience. One that is highly recommended if you have any interest in the lifestyle of the British Royalty. This glimpse into their lives is fascinating.

    Amazing view from castle.. Well self explanatory with so much of information on struggle of warriors and we could also see jail where prisoners were kept in dark unhygienic conditions within thick wooden doors.View was amazing from top..

    This museum is quite large and has many exhibits. There is something for everyone--ranging from history to science!

    It was amazing with lots of magical illusions at every floor. The gift shop at the end was a cherry on the cake.

    We spent 2-3 hours here and enjoyed every second of it.

    Honestly, a great historic area. It was fun to wander the streets and narrow alleys always in the shadow of the imposing castle. As the day wears on, it gets a little too crowded with tourists which detracts from it’s appeal. Everyone sells the same lambs wool scarfs, and, while my wife tried to visit every one, I quickly became bored by them all. This is a must visit but bring a couple pounds of patience.

    So the Royal Mike is very interesting as it is sandwiched between 2 castles and offers a variety of dining opportunities. Where it was a complete let down for us was that all of the stores sold exactly the same things at slightly different price points. If you are in the market for a scarf this is your street! Architecture is amazing!

    The self-guided audio tour was well worth it at this beautiful palace. We walked the beautiful grounds, even in the drizzle and cold, because we didn't want to miss a thing. But the inside tour of the rooms was interesting and special. The device was very easy to use and there were options in each room to dive deeper into the details - giving information about a portrait or something else in the room. We thought it might be just an obligatory/basic tour of a beautiful palace but really we learned a lot and it was wonderful. And since it is self-guided we were able to go at our own pace (which is NOT slow). It was not crowded at all and we were able to purchase tickets that day.

    Nice hike from our hotel location, we walked up the hill and around the perimeter path for outstanding views in every direction. It is an easy walk to the top and can be done on the way to Arthur’s Seat - also great!

    This is a wonderful place to visit, to understand and gain insight into authentic Scotch Whiskey, and in Scotland itself. It was a very worthwhile experience for all of us.

    I was blown away by this garden. Bought a map and paid a donation and was shown what to see. Very helpful. The rock garden is amazing. The azalea lawn was spectacular. Blew me away. The blue poppies in full flower. Never seen before. For free this place is fantastic. Was happy to donate.

    My husband and I booked the gin and chocolate tasting with another couple and had the best time. We learned a lot about gin, loved the small-group experience, and of course loved tasting both the gins and the chocolate.

    Can't remember last time we visited but married a soldier 45yrs ago, interest started then. Being an army wife for 6yrs taught me an awful lot. We're both into folk music so a great deal of bagpipe music is Scottish, Northern England and Northern Irish music. We worked with people from all these places doing 2yrs 6mths in N Ireland and from getting married we've both thoroughly enjoyed going up there any chance we could. Good idea for kids interested in forces male or female, drs or nurses, for example RAMC puts a bit order into your life.

    We did the Pea-cocktail experience and it was absolutely fantastic. Alyssia was an entertaining and knowledgeable guide taking us from the beginning gin to present day and Pickerings. Highly recommended.
