My son's soccer trip (12/13 year olds!) is approaching and I got some great advice from you guys last time I asked! :) So based on that advice, we are planning to do the Castle (seeing the 1 o'clock gun!), hopefully a late lunch, then the Edinburgh Dungeon.
A couple more things I hope you can help with:
1. About how long to tour the castle do you think? Keeping in mind that they are pre-teen boys.. I want to time to to see the gun.
Looking at the castle website, they have a "Family-friendly" itinerary - has anyone followed that? Not sure what the highlights will be for the boys.
Any suggestions of a pub/restaurant that could take 25-30 of us near the castle?
