A great 20 minute visit. Also, if you walk past the little booth at the foot of the castle, there is a great little public path that passes cows and donkeys and sheep, and a covered trail.

One of the neglected gems of this area. Free entry and a gate-keeper who will allow kids to play with his collection of Norman and Viking replica weapons.

Came across this by chance and the views alone are amazing. Well worth a stop just for the views alone. Castle inself us impressive. A quiet spot. Has picnic tables for a spot of lunch.
