Drive down the main street past the shops on either side with the Butter Cross behind you. Where the road bends around to the right, look for the Church on the left hand side of the street before going round the bend. The Castle is...More
This is a fantastic little place with much history to enjoy. The fabulous little antique shops dotted about are very interesting with lovely butchers shops and specialty cafe’s around. Well worth the small journey from the 66 to enjoy

WOW What a castle, and why haven't I been here before, just as you think that's it there's more to see than meets the eye.

I would say a large part of the castle is accessible provided you are happy to go across grass, i.e. There isn't paths everywhere. The only bit you would completely miss are the views from inside the tower.
