Craigmillar Castle is my favorite castle.
Craigmillar Castle is my favorite castle. Not easy to navigate, but amazing views and lovely corners to rest and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Transport & Parking
One disabled parking space, against the wall of the visitor centre - no hatched space to the right, so a mobility impaired driver would have to reverse into the space to be able to get out with ease.
This is really a yes and no. There is a ramp into the visitor centre and onto the castle grounds. However, access into the castle itself is blocked by a 10 cm high step, which could quite easily be retrofitted with an on and off ramp to give access to the castle court. Big plus for Historic Scotland though - they provide an access guide for their properties: http://www.historic-scotland.gov.uk/access-guide.pdf
Good space, a heavy wheel chair might get stuck in the grass on approach to the toilets.
I have not needed mobility help on my visit, but the staff was very friendly and approachable.
