  • Stand alone. Beautiful on the outside. Could not go inside. Rocky beach was beautiful.
  • Very calm and beautiful place to rest. As the castle is part of a private property it is not directly accessible.
  • Interesting location by the sea. The castle is on private property, but it is worth the drive off the main road to see.
  • Nice place to visit, beautiful storm beach but Castle is not open due to its dangerous state
  • Cool stop on the side of a narrow road, right on the water. No entry, but a good photo.
