Amazing park to visit with free parking there is a bus service to take you to the castle or you can walk and enjoy the Amazing views. The tour of the castle gives local history and touring the gardens is also worth the time.

We visited the park while staying in the area. We took the bus to the castle from the visitor's centre as it is a very long walk and did the guided tour. The grounds and castle are amazing and definitely worth a visit.

Yes get the shuttle buzz to castle and head from there out the trail. Lashed rain for whole walk. Didn't bother me though. Enjoy
