Very nice castle. Went here many years ago but keep threatening to go back. Would recommend to families. Part of the ring of 3 castles.

An excellent castle with great views across the valley. Its condition means there are many levels which you can access and explore. The cafe was brilliant with freshly baked scones straight from the oven. Delicious and very filling.
