Nice place for a look around after a lovely walk on the beach. Bit of a climb up the surrounding hills, but great sea views on the way.

Great for a day out with younsters. There is woefully little known history of this place and it is on a great beach route whichever way you.

The castle and beach are accessible and relatively easy walk, the castle is kept beautifully, and the views are spectacular, well worth a visit.

I'm a bit stunnned people are grumbling about making an effort to walk up a hill, it isn't that steep or in fact long! It isn't really set up for buggies or wheelchair users, but as the attraction is currently free I think it's great...More
