The Bayt (Castle) is closed for further restoration (nothing to do with the RAF destroying it years ago at the then Sultan's invitation!). Always check before driving to Omani Forts as they are often closed for works.
But there is a good working Falaj with good water flow which if you have the time and energy (38c when we arrived) you can walk along to the Harat As Sibani settlement. This is really interesting and is in the course of UNESCO restoration so go soon to see the basics of this medieval mud house settlement. The walk is mainly shaded and brings you very obviously to the foot of the mud village.
Well worth the stop even with the Bayt closed.
