Can you tell me...

is this castle so popular that it is best to arrive early in the day?

We will be visiting in early October

We went in March of this year and it was crowded but that's half the fun. Just go and enjoy yourself.

You should be fine to arrive whenever in October.

Edinburgh Castle is the Most Visited “Paid for” Attraction in Scotland.

So yes it’s very busy.

And it is slightly cheaper to buy tickets in advance.

Edinborough is in Minnesota, not Scotland and that isn't in Carnoustie.

I went on a Sunday in June with pre-paid tickets. Arrived after lunch and waited about 5 minutes in line before entering.
