A stunning location for a unique and interesting castle ruin. We had fun wandering around the site and exploring the various rooms and corridors that still remain. Stunning views and a stomach turning drop off one side. Worth the visit!

Visited on a cold but very sunny day in December. It is £5 to get in and there is a coffee shop at the bottom of the walk to the Castle. People very often get married here as there is a well appointed room in which this can take place.

From the moment you see it driving up the small lane, it commands attention. Built on a high hilltop it is isolated from everything around it and is the quintessential ruined castle.
