Lovely ruins of the castle set in stunning ground's with beautiful views. The museum is great for younger children were they can dress up and colour and draw. On a sunny day take a picnic.

A beautiful ruin in the most gorgeous of surrounding. Takes about 20 minutes to walk around and we could take the dog. A nice thing to do if you are filling time.
