AN angry tourist turned on staff at Edinburgh Castle after they told him that his son could not fire the One o’Clock Gun.
Black eyes and broken teeth were among the injuries suffered in other incidents.
One woman, who works at Edinburgh Castle, said: “You’d be surprised how angry people can get when they visit. I’ve seen visitors get hot under the collar from everything from the shop running out of a certain size of T-shirt to a man’s son not being allowed to fire the One o’Clock Gun.”
The documents, released under freedom of information laws, did not reveal at which Historic Scotland site each incident had taken place.
The incident logs show that in March 2007 one steward was beaten up by a visitor asking them to move a car parked illegally.
