  • A nice wee castle but still quiet intact and well looked after. The castle is of the beaten track but set in a picturesque area. The main car park is closed off but you have limited parking adjacent.....  more

  • A very nice castle, free of charge, 5 minute walk from the small parking lot. A good drive by attraction
  • Short walk from main road. Restricted parking. For some reason the car park is closed. No facilities. Great viewpoint. Used to be someone’s house.
