Any castle is worth a free visit.
Edinburgh and Stirling are especially good, even if you've been before.
Bear in mind majority of sites will probably be mobbed with small soldiers with their plastic swords at the ready.

Get along early.

damn, there 2 weeks later... any other discounts around?

Anybody else having loading issues?

Great! went to Stirling castle with this offer last year, will try Edinburgh castle this time

Hi,
Just to let everyone know if booking, you must provided all the names of the people going & you may be asked at the venue for ID so it matches the ticket(s).

Tickets will be e-mailed to you so you can print them off.

Just a heads up for everyone.

Its workin fine for me now ... great deal cheers to U Thankyou !!!!!

Got 2 for Edinburgh Castle Saturday morning, no problem. I will be wearing a ultra blue GG jacket. Thanks, see you there.

Cheers went to Edinburgh Casle last year so just booked for Stirling.

Great find OP, can't wait to get along with little ones...now I just gotta find myself an HUKD lunch deal in Edinburger

Just booked for Edinburgh thanx

website is struggling!
I've been trying for over an hour with chrome and IE

oh bother, I'm around there until the week before anyone send me any suggests on what's the best free stuff to do in Edinburgh.

I won't be going 'cause it's always mobbed so badly you can hardly move, particularly Edinburgh Castle, but most of the sites are worth a visit if you haven't been before, so first-timers should definitely head along if you don't mind heavy crowds.

The National Museum on Chambers Street, the Childhood Museum on the lower part of the Royal Mile, The National Portrait Gallery, The Royal Botanic Gardens, guided tours of the Parliament building, you can climb Arthur's Seat and visit many monuments, like the Greyfriar's Bobby statue and his churchyard nearby. There's plenty of sightseeing to be had as well which of course doesn't cost anything, there are lots of public parks and gardens to visit, and many of the old churches and cathedrals are free to visit too. Shopping is pretty good in the city centre too.

Thank you.

Hi

Sorry never got back earlier.
Answer you're looking for might depend on YOUR location and transport availability.

I can thoroughly recommend the 3D castles
Dumbarton, Doune and Dirleton.

Dumbarton is relatively compact, has excellent views on clear days, but does have a downside as the internal paths and walkways are quite steep so might not be suitable to everyone.

Doune is excellent with surrounding excellent walks .Look out for the coconuts.

Dirleton is also excellent, especially if you live further east. The extra advantage it has [ if you're up for it] is it's close proximity to Tantallon castle. If you start out early[ish] you can capture two castles in one day.
These castles don't have tearooms, so take a picnic with you, even if you've got to sit in your car because of the weather.

If you will be travelling by car all four are normally easy to park at.
If you've got a VAN, keep the music down.

Have a good weekend. Hope it stays dry for you
