Great freebie I got it last year, was so excited, went to Edinburgh only to be taken to hospital urgently ONE hour before castle opened, with acute peritonitis. I was gutted... but then the nurses gave me an individual room with a view on the castle!!! Anyway thanks OP.

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

cheers, will plan a visit to edinburgh with the kids, a real treat for free.

Thanks

I have use the St. Andrews free weekend the last 2 years to take the opportunity to visit Edinburgh Castle with the kids they love it, but too expensive at other times of the year. I was surprised that it is not too busy on the day. Well worth visiting some of Scotland's treasures.

Latest commentsPost comment

Correct ! You pay for 12 months by DD and then get 6 months free = 18 months in total.

the way i have read it you pay the f irst twelve months then you get the other six months free total eighteen months membership.

[QUOTE=munnski;5256222]If you sign up for the 6months free do you have to pay for the year, ie 6months, or can you cancel after 6months?

Also does anyone know what places you get into as the website doesn't say :?


if you click Find your nearest property there's a download on the left hand side.
A great saving as admission to Edinburgh castle is £12 per adult.

If you sign up for the 6months free do you have to pay for the year, ie 6months, or can you cancel after 6months?

Also does anyone know what places you get into as the website doesn't say :?

EDIT - Found it, you have to pay for the 1st 6months via direct debit and the last 6 months are free of the year package to anyone interested

seems ok but its a bit far form me heat added thio

ive been a member of historic scotland for a few years now and find it terrific value for the family membership
it actually used to include free parking at the esplanade at edinburgh castle but commuters found out it was cheaper to pay for a membership and park there for a year than it was to pay edinburgh parking rates for a week
