I have visited Bolton Castle a few times and I fall in love with it more on each visit. I first spotted the castle many years ago on a walk around Aysgarth falls. It was a sunny day and the castle came into view after climbing a small hill, the view was like something from a painting and we just had to visit! The history of the castle is fascinating, especially as Mary Queen of Scotts was once help captive here. Whether warm and sunny or cold and windy, the castle has a magical atmosphere that appeals to people of all ages. With the introduction of the birds of prey and the wild boar there is even more for families to do. A definite must if you are in the area!
