It's a fair wee walk up to this castle in the stifling heat but so absolutely worth it the castle itself is lovely with some good information and nice wee displays inside but the view from the highest point was the highlight simply stunning.

It was an especially windy day for a hike but the view was magnificent and well worth the biting cold! The grounds are well kept and there are several interesting things to see in the castle. But the view! Seriously!
