Always wanted to visit and I was not disappointed! Steeped in fascinating history, particularly about the conscientious objectors. The views are amazing.

If travelling by car, nearest parking is in the market square which is a bit of a lottery i.e. find the spot, although with a time restriction of 2 hours there is usually somebody moving on. There are 4 bays right up by the castle...More
