There seem to be lots of ways to access the castle. My approach was from Vardre Avenue, going via the track from All Saints church. It's best to do a little homework on Google maps because there are only a few authorised access points, with...More

Not a lot of castle left but it must have been very impressive at the time , but the views are worth the walk
