It was a nice walk to see the views of the town, the castle, and the craggs. It would be nice if they had a board that told you what you were looking at because there were some things that I couldn't figure out.

WE enjoyed this . Very impressive although hard to see what was going on some of the time. Fantastic costumes, and a huge and dedicated cast. Impressive fire. Good to know that every year people climb the hill to do this. Worth going - we made the trip to Edinburgh especially. Can be a bit chilly on the hill. I was disappointed by the mess the audience left. Maybe more bins are needed?

Had to have a look at the "Acroplois" and then went up the tower - amazing views fromnthe top and well worth the entrance fee, Then we had a picnic on the hill and just watched ships in the Forth - great day out.
