Came here for a nice quiet walk, nice views, castle ruins were kept well and walked down the field to view Mill Force, highly recommend for a quiet stroll during covid times

We went here whilst out and about for the day as it was close to our accommodation. Nice way to fill 30-60mins. Completely free and quite interesting - worth a popping in to get a bit of local history into your holiday!

Amazing place with historical feeling. We visited 5 am (sunrising) and it was very unique and excellent feeling. No people, only low sun and old stones around. Wonderfull view. I love this place and never forget the feeling be there in this moment. Small gate to castle area was open and wasnt needed pay any entrance.

I saw the brown tourist sign pointing down a tiny alleyway and thought it couldn't be there, but it was! I have been to this area and the environs many times and never knew there was a a castle ruin here! It appears to be now almost in someone's back garden, which made me reticent about exploring but on a bitterly cold, windy winter afternoon with the sun about to set, it did look beautiful.
