What a great place! Really brings to life how people back then lived. Gorgeous views from the castle of the valley, too.

We went here on our Uniworld cruise. It was incredibly interesting and beautiful. Not easy to walk, but worth it. Our guide was entertaining and informative.

This was an optional extra tour on our river cruise on the Monarch Queen. We loved the castle and especially our tour guide who's dry sense of humour was a feature of the tour !

There are some places that you have to watch your step. At the beginning there are some stone steps that are original to the castle. As long as you are watching your step you will be okay. Most of the time it is an easy... More

Hi- I have a balance issue too. The castle entrance is the worse part once you are through the locked door. I managed well, just held onto my husband's arm & took my time. You aren't rushed in that part of the castle. The... More
