Hamish visited Carisbrooke Castle in July 2007 during a short break to the Isle of Wight. He enjoyed exploring the castle courtyard and high level Wall Walk. He did not go to the very top of the keep (although dogs can go up here) where there are great all round views over the island and to the mainland. The castle has some indoor areas where dogs are not allowed so his people took it in turn to visit these including The Wellhouse where the resident donkeys take it in turn to raise the well bucket. There are a number of seating areas to rest weary legs with choices in the sun or shade and plenty of green space around the castle for more active dogs to get extra exercise including The Ramparts Walk. Hamish finished his visit with a trip to the tearoom which has inside and outside seating. He was pleased to find a large water bowl which a member of staff refilled for him and he also helped his people polish off very tasty cream teas!
