Unfortunately only seen from a distance, but will come again and explore the ruins.

Easily accessible via the 3 Burgensteig, a beautiful hiking trail with rewarding viewpoints. Hiking maps and tips are available from TI Riedenburg. All 3 castles can be comfortably completed in 2 to 3 hours. There is a star deduction because the route is also used by mountain bikers. Pity!

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
