This overlooks the harbour. Well preserved and interesting. The shipwreck museum is in the castle and is a must-see feature.

Fabulous views from the battlements across the harbour. Impressive wreck of 3000 year old ship and contents. Coffee shop, toilets and small gift shop.

This is huge castle in terms of land area. It is worth a visit but if you are disabled or unsure of your footing, you might want to stay on the ground floor as the battlements are quite worn and handrails are not always available.
