For those who are more inclined towards history than nature, then a visit to Picton castle is defiantly in order. The Castle was originally built in the 13th century, although sadly it has underwent numerous renovations during its lifetime meaning that little of the original work still remains. This is not to decry the current architecture of the Castle however, which is nothing short of amazing!
