Really nice little castle, go in the morning just after it opens for more space and ability to move around without the crowds. There is a little jetty just outside the castle which is great to take some breakfast, watch the fishing and the boats go by. There is also a great little town just by with plenty of places to eat and enjoy.
Had an excellent tour ending in a beautiful theatre from the 1700s which is part of the building. Lots of history and interesting portraits capturing the some of the spirit of times past. Recommended!
