The village is in a quiet backwater but it's worth searching for the ruined 3-storey castle which still has its arched entrance way and guard rooms intact. Yes, the castle does have an air of melancholy, heightened on our visit by the drizzle and the...More

Little to see or do here. Couldn't find the castle. Signposted down a road but no castle in sight. Must only be a rock left! Little village for passing through - shop and chip-shop. Little else.
