Admire city views from the high ramparts of Edinburgh’s “other castle”, play hide – and – seek in its labyrinth of chambers or picnics in its courtyards.
Craigmillar Castle was a prison for the younger brother of James III, a happy retreat for Mary Queen of Scots and the focus of a plot to murder her husband Darnley. Its profile is dominated by its remarkably complete inner curtain wall.
