The castle is located in splendid isolation a few miles outside the village. It is a formidable presence – easily conjuring images of the bloody struggles for control of the Border lands. Hermitage is surrounded by myth and legend but in truth much happened on the site creating a history of torture, treason – and romantic trysts! Well worth a visit - take a picnic. The landscape, setting and running waters make for a truly magical and memorable experience.
