Castle Island
Castle Island
Excavations on the island last century showed the ruins to be of a mediaeval manor house. There is speculation that prior to that it may have been a religious site. The island is completely encircled by a substantial stone wall, which can be clearly seen in the picture, and a submerged causeway connects it to the mainland.
