What people are saying about Royal Mile

Must see if you love the Scottish history

Absolute iconic building located in Old Edinburgh, few minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station following market street. A truly lovely destination knowing how the Scottish struggle to keep the castle fight with the English. The castle is divided into three parts : Upper Ward, Hawk Hill and lower ward. Main attractions are Prison of War, Royal Scots Dragoon Guard, Royal Scots Museum and Queen Jewels. Keep an easy 3-4 hours to visit the castle. It can get very busy at times, we went on a long weekend August Holiday. You can enjoy the best view from the top which gives you history on how the new Edinburgh was build up. Don’t forget to walk on the royal mile as it is worth going with lot of things happening. We were lucky enough as they had a fringe festival. Can’t wait to go back. Love you Edinburgh, a beautiful and lively city.

An excellent and a must see place for anyone who is visiting Scotland.

I liked the one oclock artillery gun fire. It was a great treat to see how land was ruled and controlled by the rulers in the old days. Wars were fought for land, money and women. The dress codes and the weapons used during wars were astonishing. Justice and fairness were never the number one goal may it be in the past or in the present. Achievements were always measured with wealth that got acquired at the end of wars. It is also great to see how records were kept in those days and how those records were safe guarded against enemies. Hats off to those Who had the foresight and the determination to safe guard all those remaining wealth. Thank you once again. Rajah

The best historical tour experience of any castle I have seen.

My tour guide was exceptional! He was very engaging and made sure our money was well spent. It only cost us £10 more to get the tour guide than a self-guided tour of a castle and it was the best £10 I have ever spent! I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Edinburgh’s must-see castle and have a better understanding of its historical context. The stories told regarding everything in the castle were very entertaining, interesting, and mind-boggling. You must know the history of the castle to get the full experience and understand its architecture. Definitely worth it!

Excellent guide with lots of historical info

Angus was a great guide. Lots of info, good sense of humour and kept us moving. It was an extremely windy day and he tried as best he could to keep us protected. Futile, but he tried. Wonderful property that we enjoyed seeing close up.

Informative and entertaining tour of Edinburgh Castle

My family went on a tour with Alasdaire from Little Fish on the 8th of June. It was a very well organised, educational and entertaining experience. We really enjoyed the activity.
