  • A fiver is too much it doesn't even have a roof! Take my advice. Walk around the castle and stables outside instead, then go on the walk down to River from car park and have a look at the church. Then go spend the saved money on a nice coffee.
  • IT IS A WONDERFUL MONUMENT.WE VISIT DE CASTLE IN 1981 TO SEE WHERE OUR ANCESTORS CAME FOR. WE LIVE IN CHILE SOUTHAMERICA AND HOPE TO COME BACK AS SOON WE CAN. ANA MARIA WILSON CRICHTON

  • Great castle for a look round, can spend a good hour or so here. Lots of history and things to see.
  • great walking destination, if I did more walking :) lots of history to explore, useful notice boards, can be seen from miles around, and conversely, can see for miles around
