Looks like I'll have to scratch a visit to Dunnottar on this visit due to time/logistics. I have looked at the visitscotland website and see many castles in the general Edinburgh area. We won't have a car and would love to find another castle on the coast that is doable by train. My current plan for Scotland portion is: arrive by train Wed.afternoon - visit friend/castle in North Berwick
Thursday- Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle
Friday - train to Stirling Castle and ??(would love to see Highland Cows/Lochs)
Saturday - morning available - train to Leuchars, spend night in St. Andrews
Sunday - St. Andrews - late day train to York
Any suggestions of other coastal castles within easy striking distance of Edinburgh?
