Please take careful note of the advice regarding access given by the Tattoo Office:

Castlehill, the old-cobbled approach to the Castle Esplanade, is a short walk of some 80 metres, though on a steep incline, and consequently, may prove difficult for some. In addition, there is on average, a further 60 metres followed by a five or so steps to be negotiated, to reach the front rows of all the spectator stands in the arena where, generally, the seating is quite steeply tiered.
