Pretty disappointed. Arrived at 1700 and bought tickets figuring an hour was long enough to see everything. At 1730 the clerk who sold us the tickets said they were closing in 15 minutes and we needed to finish up. She never said they were closing 15 minutes early when we purchased the tickets. The gift shop was also already closed at 1730, so I wasn't able to buy anything. What we saw was ok, but losing 25% of our time really cut into our experience.

One of the most beautiful manors in Lithuania. Inside you can find out about the former owners of this manor Oginskis. Enjoy a walk in the beautiful park. The place is steeped in history.

Broch of Gurness

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.

The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
