Craigmillar Castle

A well preserved medieval castle, Craigmillar has a tower house, courtyard and gardens.

Craigmillar’s story is linked with that of Mary Queen of Scots. Superb views from tower house.

Highlights

  • The tower house – one of the oldest in Scotland, and with fascinating features, including a fine great hall and the so-called ‘Queen Mary’s Room’.
  • The views from the tower – over the city of Edinburgh, including Holyrood Park and Edinburgh Castle.
  • The nooks and crannies – a great castle to explore because of the many dark and mysterious chambers.
  • The grounds – including the remains of an unusual fishpond laid out in the shape of a letter P, for Preston.
