    I'm going solo during the time of the Festival. £16 is steep for what Ive heard is a small castle.. worth it tho?

    Yass! I've been there twice- really good! Yeah it's small enough but really authentic and enjoyable- amazing views of Edinburgh and cheaper than touring those places on a sightseeing bus!

    I avoided it after I read a critical review of it on tripadvisor (just another castle, nothing special...).

    The royal yacht britiannia is worth a visit even at £15.

    There are great views from places like calton hill and arthurs seats and they're free.

    Personally, I found it worthwhile for the money. I ended up spending a good few hours wandering around looking at everything. Although it's a fairly small site, there were actually quite a few different bits and exhibits to see there. They also have guided tours included in the entrance fee if you want to do one (or at least they did when I was there a few years ago), which I found quite interesting. Having said that, I'm quite into my history so for me it was one of the must do things in Edinburgh. If it isn't your thing, I wouldn't spend £16 or waste time there that you could be doing something you'd enjoy more

    Hope that helps
