I had just fitted 4 brand-new tyres to the car so didn't fancy driving up the stony track, so we viewed the castle from the village! Next time we are in the area I will arrange more time and walk up.

Tried to visit this castle as look so nice perched on a hill. The road up to it was so bad had to turn the car around. You need a 4 x 4 to reach it. Looked good form a distance.
