  • Brilliant family day out. Great walk an views all round it. It has a wee cafĂ© on site. A visitor centre with toilets and you can see what wildlife live in the area, they also have old army uniforms, pictures, guns and knives etc to view. We also went into the museum and seen the viking stuff and old army kits etc. Was very interesting looking at the old artillery that was used on the fort in its day. Very much recommend it for a day trip, if your into history.
  • Really enjoyed here. Great parking. Had our 3 year old here held his hand no problem. There is a small coffee shop for refreshments. Some incredible views from here. Would go back again.
  • Great day out, kids loved it as did the grown ups. Beautiful views and plenty to see and if your game theres a big walk up to one of the look out posts on the hill with loads of steps. Definitely recommend anyone to visit this place.
  • Former Army Barracks. It is now a Museum. With fantastic views and a number of walks for all ages groups. There are also a number of water sports during the summer months from canoeing to hill climbing. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Didn't go into Fort. Lovely walks from car park. Cafe does great coffee and cake.
