Howdy all y'all,
My wife and I are contemplating a trip to Scotland in the Fall. Our primary goal will be seeing castles. I'd love some recommendations. Just as a point of reference more interested in say...history, ruins, and ghosts then Royals.
Scotland is an absolutely beautiful country, I strongly encourage a visit! There are loads of amazing castles in Scotland-my husband and I only made it to a few and we're itching for the day we can return to see more.
Edinburgh Castle is a great castle to visit and there is plenty to do in the busy city of Edinburgh as well. The castle is very well maintained and there is a lot to see; it can get very busy so I recommend arriving as close to opening time as possible to beat the crowds. The castle is located on top of one of the highest hills in the city so views from the castle are well worth the walk up.
