  • Took a Game of Thrones tour here, which was awesome! Just some walls and foundation now. Has great views. Would go if you've got a spare half hour.
  • Lovely site, with great historical presence! Walked down to the Abbey to see Game of Thrones tour all dressed up shouting King of the North! Inch Abbey was Rob Starks camp in GOT season 1.
