The views from here are vast. There is plenty to see and do for families, entry to the castle next door is reasonable too.

A big uphill walk to see this place and while the main building are in tact, the rest of the surrounding artefacts have not been and is very disappointing.

Well worth the climb to the top of the hill. You can also take in the castle next door. At the front of the biulding yo can pay 1 euro to have the areas lit - well worth it.
