This is something that has to be seen, it is not possible to adequately describe.

There aren't many historical attractions that are this simple and beautiful. A great place to walk with fantastic views.

Amazing place. Cannot comprehend how big this castle would have been when in use - amazing.
Only disappointing thing about exploring this site is it might have been nice to put up posts of where allthe living areas would have been and perhaps at its most busiest time of how many people worked and lived here!

I don't agree whith the last reviewer! Our kids loved it, and it was so interesting to see the castle. We asked the guards nicely, and they actually let us sleep there for the night! Such lovely people, right?
Jimmy wants to go back next year, he bah a BLAST! but I think Jehmimah would rather go to Orkney :(

A must have visit if you're in the area. You can really only begin to understand the significance of this site when you get there as I was not prepared for it's size and impressive structure. Free to visit. Car park well located. Be prepared for walking as the site is enormous. Information boards highlight areas of interest. Great views of the area.
