We paid 3 euros each to have a very quick walk to this ruined fort. There is not much left, it was really disappointing. It looked like it was going through some repairs. Definitely not worth 3 euros per person. The sea views were nice...More

There is a small fee for entering the ruins. It was very windy and cold when we visited so we did not stay long. There is not a lot to see...a stone wall with some doorways. It is interesting that the fort was built in...More

Well worth the stop, it's true there is not much left of the actual Fort due to a storm in 2014 and the natural eroding, but the history is amazing. It's a must to see the movie first, it just puts everything in perspective and...More

Interesting little hill fort on the edge of the cliff. Don't expect a vast amount and it won't take too much of your time. Fantastic views from the cliffs. Hurry... will be eroding soon

This is an excellent example of 8th to 11th century defence systems against marauding bands from land and sea. Standing in the fort transports one back in time, if you let your imagination work. Feel the ocean breeze and smell the salt air. Well worth...More

this is ruin of a mideval ring fort, designed to either protect local farm population or to guard from the sea. It is right on a cliff and has partially fallen in, the explanations are pretty good, and the views from the fort and walk...More
