... was no audio guide and only 2 information posters around the whole castle. To top it all off, the wind was blowing so hard it was hard to walk. We stayed there for about 1.5 hours and then called a cab to pick us up because there was no visitors centre or museum. It was really cool but needed more information. After we took 2 trains to get to Stirling castle. This was much better and there was tons of info posters. We hiked about 15 mins up a hill in the rain ...
