And in Scotland, and in France, and in Belgium and I have to say that this did impressed me, though I thought that the castles I'm immune. The castle is beautifully situated, very well maintained and something is, you should spend on a tour of 30-50 minutes.
S'arrêter absolument. Cela vaut vraiment le détour. On en prend plein les yeux pour 5,5£. Parking gratuit. WC et petite boutique à l'entrée.

Very well explained and one can easily imagine the place as it was centuries ago. Don't worry to cross the small bridge even if you dizzy!
Well organised, good information and all round interesting. There is plenty of parking and a nice cafe. Admission charge is reasonable (£15 for a family ticket) - highly recommended.
Fantastic! Amazing views and a great learning experience. Also great for all the Game of Thrones fans out there as the "Iron Islands" are modeled after this castle. A must see experience! Great knowledge from the staff, very awe inspiring.
