  • Situated just a couple of miles from the town of Wick, and a short hop from Noss Head lighthouse, this is a gem of a wee ruin. A gentle walk down from the nearby car park takes in breathtaking views of Scotland's northeast coastline. The ruin is well maintained as an attraction with plenty of informative signage about the history and construction of the castle. Worth a visit.
