The road is not easy for families with young children. The view is gorgeous! After all the effort I found the castle closed for lack of staff!

We visited in May 2018 to find the castle closed- there's no money to employ staff- shame they can't muster up some volunteers to keep it open. We were still glad of the visit as the views from the few bars and restaurants on Bohali...More

We wanted to visit the castle but found out that it is permanently closed since January 2018 due to lack of staff. Perhaps good to know before you decide to walk up. On the hill in Bohali village you can still enjoy some nice views...More

Since we took wrong on the time and days I doubt I am the one who answer the openinh hours. But I'd believe you can take that in, in a smaller bag or something. I took my camerabag in and there were no problems.
