There were 12 solitary confinement as well as a larger room with hammocks where POWs would have stayed. The castle was very beautiful and allowed for some stunning views of Edinburgh.

It would have been my wtf pic but barb did a good job of containing my outrage toward him and his retarded parents, who laughed as he ****** on the walls. Also found a place called Milne's court.
