We were fortunate enough to visit the castle at a quiet time - just before and during sunrise on 23/12. The staff member at the castle (Stuart) was incredibly friendly and, as we were the only visitors for about half an hour, took the time to tell us about some of the history of the castle and of the site. We were very grateful for his time and enthusiasm - it made our visit to an already incredible ruin even better.
It's a beautiful ruin, and I do recommend you take the time to explore the grounds thoroughly. Some wonderful opportunities for photographs if the weather holds up!
