Never got to experience the castle as it is closed for the summer, more advertisement about closure should be made available! The impressive scaffolding is worth a see though!

Very much enjoyed visiting the castle, not on this visit but a couple of years ago, really interesting Edwardian Interiors and fantastic views from the battlements. Scaffolding over the castle at the moment.

It's covered in scaffolding and closed to the public while it is treated to rennovations after years of being buffeted by the elements coming off the North Sea but it's still a dramatic sight, rising up on a rocky outcrop just a short (clearly signposted) walk from the carpark/village.

Currently closed for 18 months refurbishing and covered with scaffolding. Will be great once completed, etc... but at the moment, just a building site.
