Even though the castle is now in a very ruined state, it is still a very interesting place to wander around. The views from here are delightful and the walks are highly recommended. Plenty of free parking

Great place to begin a walk in either direction around the coast. Not a lot of castle left or much information on site so don't expect a 'castle' as such.

Nice little ruin in a very scenic part of the island, there lots of wild life around the site, and several different walks can be started from here. Definitely worth a look if your intrested in the history of the island, parking is free.

The castle comprises of an arch and some ruins; the arch is beautiful in the Jersey granite. There are spectacular views looking down the cliffs into the water and impressive views across to Guernsey and Sark. Nice for a quick exploration.

A very dilapidated castle which is now difficult to imagine what it was without the description board at the door. It main attraction is the stunning views overlooking Sark and Guernsey.

An ancient castle on the NW corner of Jersey, with the glowering concrete bunkers of German engineering alongside. With views stretching out over the Channel what a place. The castle only had 3 walls, the cliffs were the 4th side, I loved it.
