NEWS – St Andrew’s Day 2010, free entry to Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh Zoo

Four days free entry across Historic Scotland sites  27th – 30th November 2010.


28th Nov update – please check with attractions before you visit, the majority have been closed to snow as far as we are aware.

As part of St Andrew’s Day 2010 celebrations, Historic Scotland are repeating their free entry to the magnificent Edinburgh Castle on 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th November 2010.  Our other Edinburgh favourite, Craigmillar Castle is also included on the free list for the four days.  Slightly further afield, Tantallon Castle, Dirleton Castle and all the Border’s Abbeys are also free of charge .   

A great way to explore these wonderful monuments for free, but past experience tells us to get their early as crowds do build up.        

Also reported on Visit Scotland is free entry to Edinburgh Zoo.  Please be advised that in past years, this attraction has been extremely busy due to the free entry, but because the 30th is a Tuesday, it shouldn’t be as bad, but the car park will fill up quickly.

Our reviewed and recommended Royal Yacht Britannia is offering 2 admissions for the price of 1 on production of a copy of theVisit Scotland Winter Festivals Guide, which can be picked up at the tourist information centre, hotels and various shops.
