Dunstanburgh Castle and Craster Harbour

Castles

Craster Harbour is a tiny fishing port that offers a great pub for crab sandwiches, walks to Dustanburgh Castle along the coastal path and a smokery to buy some kippers for breakfast! There is also the Arnold Memorial Northumberland Wildlife Trust Nature reserve which can be found within an old quarry. A visit to the Jolly Fisherman by the Harbour wall is well recommended but booking is essential in peak season if you wish to eat in the restaurant upstairs which has views over the harbour wall and up to the castle ruins. The coastal path is a gentle climb uphill from the harbour to the castle.  Parking in the village by the harbour walls is restricted but a large car park is provided just a few minutes walk away on the approach to Craster.
