  • Lovely and quiet. More extensive than I imagined looking at the other photos. Parking available at the bottom of the hill.
  • Ruins of two adjacent castles, lined by trees and several barbeque pits.
  • Great place for walk, picnick, chilling with friends or meditating. Also pretty good outlook. There are several fireplaces for barbecue and trash bins at the location.
  • Quite large ruined castle in two sections. All of the ruins are accessible with hand rails and proper steps in place for the higher sections. Litter bins and picnic area available, so perfect to bring children. Very nice area for starting a hike.
  • Old castle ruins in a quiet, beautiful spot. Lovely panoramic views from the top of the ruins.
