  • Lovely spot, if you can stop and take some time out to enjoy it.
  • Loved it!!!!!!!Located in the middle of nowhere, but only 5-10 min walk from the main road..It's basically ruins of the original castle, but the surrounding location is anazing.If you happen to be there on a sunny day, that's definetelly a bonus ! The best and fastest stop on our west coast tour :)
