We took a road trip to Holy Island today and perhaps we were lucky with the weather as it was glorious sunshine with very little breeze - perfect! The castle was closed but from what I can gather there’s not much to see inside anyway....More

An absolutely fine example of a well maintained castle and so worth a visit . Extremely interesting and loads to look at. The walk around the castle is also worth doing.

The situation of the castle on top of a volcano was stunning! It was a long walk and a long climb up to thr castle but deflinstrly worth while Wasn't impressed with the art works - would have liked to see the Castle furnished.

Arriving by car over the road,when the tide was out was a magical experience. Making sure you returned before the tide turned was the realisation you could be cut of from the mainland like the medievil monks gave you a real sense of history

A small bit of scaffolding remains as there were renovation delays due to nesting owls but it is towards the back of the castle so I imagine lots of shots could be done without it.
