What people are saying:

This island fortress is accessed by a short ferry ride from the city harbour and is a brilliant day out. The island is big enough to spend several hours on and the historical features are most interesting. There are some places to eat but I recommend taking food and enjoying a picnic if it's sunny. Check out the old church as well in the centre of the island.

    Like the olden days

    Wow. Almost like a theme out of game of thrones. I loved this castle. The ferry over was nice. And many local with original crafts. Very cool to see.

    Interesting

    Even in December we loved this place. We spent most of the day here as there is so much to see and so much history. It wasn’t too busy and just a wee bit chilly getting the ferry over to it.
