We visited this castle with a 9yo and we all loved it. The rooms and halls were set up as close to what they would have been hundred of years ago. We had fun exploring all the passageways and rooms. The views were stunning.

I must say it’s one of the simplest looking castle in a nice sense and situates in a most stunning location. Only a few steps to great dining. Plenty of parking nearby.
