There's not much left of the windmills, which is a shame as they must have been spectacular in their day. I believe they were in use up to the 1970's and there are plans afoot to restore some of them. They are located on a...More

More than visiting the windmills, you would enjoy the magnificent view over the high lands where they are located. It is a bit difficult to walk up there (about 45 minutes walking from the Castle) and the grounds are steep (for at least 25 minutes)...More
