  • The climb up to this lookout was amazing. We climbed to the top and took lots of scenic pictures. The history about this castle told of its importance of warning the island of incoming war ships

  • This was a stop for us on a foggy day. We new view would be limited but all the views were limited. We spent about 15 minutes total. Watch your head at top of stairs. It’s a very low ceiling

  • The best view ever! Many little rabbit all over.
  • Great 360 ° view. The lookout can be reached by car, or parked by the road and a short walk along the way. At the time of my visit, the condition was as it is in the photos. The observation tower is currently being renovated.
