Well preserved attractive castle with a nice 15-20 min seafront walk to get there. National Trust entry fees always seem a little over the top but at least the kids were free (<5yr). Not a huge amount to see inside but it passes a hour...More

The situation of the castle on top of a volcano was stunning! It was a long walk and a long climb up to thr castle but deflinstrly worth while Wasn't impressed with the art works - would have liked to see the Castle furnished.
