Getting up to the Castle is very easy, drink the potions of flying and head up. Of course you'll have to fight your way through it's airborne defenders but it's still the EASIST way up, just not the SAFEST.
Seems we don’t have a problem with flying since there are a supply of flying potions, so the problem seems to be the party being seen.
Sirene has the Veil spell memorized. I think this might work unless someone sees something wrong. Here is the details:
Range 10 yds./level
Duration: 1 turn/level
Area of Effect: 20-ft cube/level
Saving throw: None
The veil spell enables the wizard to instantly change the appearance of his surroundings and party or create hallucinatory terrain so as to fool even the most clever creatures (unless they have the true seeing spell, a gem of seeing, etc.). The veil can make a sumptuous room seem like a filthy den; even tactile impressions conform to the visual illusion. Likewise, a party might be made to resemble a mixed band of brownies, pixies, and faeries led by a treant. If hallucinatory terrain is created, touch does not cause it to vanish.
Seems we could fly up there in a group, using the Veil spell to hide us or make us appear as a group of gargoyles for instance.
Just a suggestion from the Paladin.

Yes as it states in the spell description it will move with you. As a matter of fact I believe the spell was recently used to make the party appear as Kobolds on the recent raid of the enemy artillery.
As far as will it work ya gotta try it. Just remember the most important thing..........

"The castle is guarded by both Dragons and Gargoyles; however, we will be throwing all Pegasus, Eagle troopers, and any other flight capable unit mainly at the Dragons as they only number 4-6 so the Gargoyles will be pretty much all yours.
Sounds like the Friendlies will be busy with the Dragons. But, if anyone has a better plan? Besides, no plan is without risk; once we get up there that will be the most dangerous.
