We walked from the town, well worth the effort. Nice castle and outside area with seats to sit and view the panorama. Little cafe serving very nice coffee.

The climb to the top is worth it just for the views. Wasn't impressed with the inside castle as was expecting much more

We walked up here early in the day, the views are picture perfect. The castle is full of historical information and is interesting to explore.
