Without doubt one of the grandest of all Scottish castles, both in its situation on a commanding rock outcrop and in its architecture.
The Great Hall and the Gatehouse of James IV, the marvellous Palace of James V, the Chapel Royal of James VI and the artillery fortifications of the 16th to 18th centuries are all of outstanding interest.
Quizzes and other kids' fun to print out from their website.
