Lovely area. Huge castle ruins, a lot of which can be climbed and explored by the nimble! Interactive displays. Will be revisiting to see the bits we missed first time around.
An interesting castle ruin with lots of information about it's history and some very steep stairwells to add some fear, the views are fantastic so not for the light hearted. Lovely little cafe and very clean toilets. Parking is off site so a little walk up the hill.
