  • Best to follow sat nav down March Rd rather than brown tourist signs from town which send you a much more complicated route. Lovely ruin with excellent views. Worth a stop

  • A spectacular clifftop walk along the ruins of a once imposing castle. An easy walk takes you to the castle. There is a path to follow along the cliff which is challenging if you're not steady on your feet but the views from the path are worth the walk with lots of birds to see nestled on the cliff face. A good place to spot curlews. Worth a visit.
  • Bumpy farm track to the castle feels like you're going the wrong way especially as there is an old military range butts blocking your view as you drive down towards it but keep going & it'll soon come into view (there were a couple of motorhomes wild camping here which let us know we were definitely going the right way). There are sudden steep drops all around the castle so keep dogs & kids on a leash
