This historic old home/castle is still lived in today by the owners. A tour through the Mount and Gardens is a must do in this area..

The climb up was punctuated by a queue which meant you got the chance to look around. The staff in the castle answered questions asked and where knowledgeable. The views were spectacular. Wear sensible shoes as floor was quite slippery as we had light rain.

The castle is really interesting but the gardens are amazing. Go early before the tide comes in so you can walk across.Spend time in the gardens which are like nothing else you've seen.

We timed our visit for the tide so we could walk the uneven granite setts cobblestone path to the entrance. Arriving at the foot and getting our tickets we looked up the very steep rough climb. Warning it is a steep climb up stones, rock...More

We did not actually visit the old castle. There was a lot to see and do without going up there.
