Grosnez is a ruined 14th century castle, which is right on the cliff edge in St Ouen. There's free parking nearby past the race course, and although the weather wasn't the best whilst I was there, the views across the coastline were amazing. The surviving...More

This castle is located right on the cliff edge. There is little of the castle remaining but it is a good place to explore. When we visited there were fabulous views over to Sark and even Guernsey. Lovely

Off the beaten track past the racecourse down at the edge of the cliffs. A nice little castle, well what's left of it and some stunning views over to Sark and Guernsey on a good day. Make it part of your cliff top walk.
