Sign said closed but went in anyway. Walk a quarter of a mile from the road, very muddy, wear boots or wellys. Not signposted from the road so easy to miss. Worth a look, great views.

This amazing ruin is well worth the effort to visit, we stumbled upon the car park by accident in the end but if you follow the road around the castle you should find it and it is an easy 5 minute walk to the castle...More
