  • Ruins but can feel the history.. Long steep climb small carpark. Amazing views. Good info boards no toilets. Well added after siege, walls strengthened and extras built.. Some parts don't make sence but a lot of history.. If I had the time.. Money I would help build this place...
  • Love this old castle brill for walks pretty long steep climb from the car park(free) but it's a castle so being easy would be kinda useless.it is pretty much mostly ruins but you do get a feel for how it would of been to stand here centuries ago,the views across the valley are spectacular there's no entrench fee so a brill day out for the whole family,bring a camera and drinks.....
  • Obvious modern fabrication. Nonsensical construction. Perpendicular walls not tied into each other. Phony round towers. Inconsistent stonework. Recently faked "water well". Romantic narrative. Archaeologists were paid handsomely to invent history here! 😭
  • Remote and windswept but we'll worth the steep climb up the hill for the breathtaking views.
  • Amazing place. Will worth a visit
