Despite the Castle being in ruins you can still visit some of the rooms and imagine how they lived in days gone by. There are lots of corners to explore including the dark and spooky pit prison. The Castle is believed to be haunted and ghost hunters from all over still flock to the Castle in the hope of seeing the mysterious visitor.
