It is not very easy to get to and is basically 3 part walls. No information on site, so you need to do your homework to understand the history of the castle.

Be prepared for a jaunt across the cliff tops but worth it for the views and stunning location at Three Cliffs Bay. Breathtaking especially if you happen on a sunny day
