Step back in time at Craigmillar Castle
Take the short 15-minute drive south of the city centre to visit the breathtaking ruins of Craigmillar Castle. The grand castle, dating back to the 14th Century, is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Scotland, bursting with historical intrigue. Craigmillar is known for its association with Mary Queen of Scots, who stayed here to convalesce after the birth of her son, James VI.
You can wander around the Great Hall and the Mary Queen of Scots room in the Tower House, and explore all the nooks and crannies and mysterious chambers of the charming castle, which also offers fantastic views across the city of Edinburgh.
