PARENTS of primary pupils have voted Edinburgh Castle the winner in an annual award for the Capital’s most family-friendly attraction.

It also won the best historical attraction category in the awards, organised by magazine Primary Times.

Anne Blackham, marketing manager at the magazine, said: “Edinburgh Castle is a historic, all-weather family attraction and it won over the hearts of many with its huge portfolio of displays and exhibitions time-lining Scotland’s rich heritage. Its family friendly events, tours and facilities also proved a hit with our readers.”

Parents at more than 100 Lothian schools voted in the awards.

Nick Finnigan, executive manager at Edinburgh Castle, said: “There is so much to see at the Castle from Scotland’s crown jewels to Mons Meg and the One O’Clock Gun.

“Our living history programmes and events are very popular, bringing Scotland’s history to life with fascinating facts, humour and drama, which are great fun for all the family.”
