Edinburgh Castle

Is rather fine. It comes complete with a hilariously over-the-top-but-kinda-cool Audio Guide that's a bit like a smug MP3 player.

Being talked around the various rooms would be fine - only someone somewhere owned a record of Bagpipes and Military Noises, and insisted on dubbing it onto the guide wherever possible.

What made it doubly maddening was that many rooms also had their own ambient Bagpipes and Military Noises in them already.

The only thing I really took in is how badly behaved French Toddlers are. They have a loathsome, wailing insousiance which tells you that they want to grow up to become delightfully quirky heroes of French Cinema.
