Really enjoyed the castle, views were great from the top also. Give yourself at least two hours so you’re not rushing around! Sunset from the top is amazing!

We were surprised when the guide in the ticket office said that it would take us at least 1 1/2 hours to get round the castle - he wasn’t exaggerating! It is quite a widespread castle - so do see the 6 minute video first...More
