Quite a nice castle with lots of room. They don't charge except for the museum but there are no amenities either, no cafe, toilets etc. Nice views and a bar outside the gates. A stationary steam engine for no apparent reason and fine views.

The museum was not open however and there was no way of actually exploring inside the building.
