  • Ruins that are spectacular. We were the only ones up there on our visit (4pm weekday).
  • I have visited this place many times. When it was quiet up there I could stay there hours ,just watching the surrounding countryside. I loved the tranquillity up there. It's an interesting place with a lot of history in a beautiful setting. ♡♡♡
  • Nice walk to impressive ruins in a field . Foot path all the way but not always smooth. Good views. Small car park. No facilities but there are information boards
  • This is a wonderful, secluded, old ruin. It's a little tough to get to, but it was one of my kids' favorites. Well worth the drive.
  • Off the beaten track.Lovely scenery.Well worth a visit.
