  • We found this hidden gem while exploring Snowdonia National Park. We visited on the Boxing day so there were no people, peaceful and tranquil. There is basically no castle left, it's mainly ruins. Des...  more »
  • The castle is located up a short walk which is not too steep but good shoes are needed. Its worth the walk though. There are quite a few walls and tower still remaining and there are boards to explain...  more »
  • A short, steep walk leads you to the castle ruins built in the 1200's. The views over the valley are stunning, and on a clear day you can really see forever!  more »

  • I found the place on a google map search and thought that the pictures looked okay. They were not not near to give a precise picture of the place. A short walk from a place to park and it just opened up to this spectacular ruin with beautiful views. There were very few people also, which is always nice, since it makes the experience more authentic. Loved being there.
  • Nice walk to impressive ruins in a field . Foot path all the way but not always smooth and Hilly...steps up to the castle. Good views. Small car park. No facilities but there are information boards
  • Interesting place. Need to go in as not much visible from the road. Great views down the valley to the sea and inland to Cadair Idris. No facilities are available. Might have to pay to get in at weekends.
  • Fabulous historic place. Car and bicycle parking available. Short steep walk to the ruins. Enough left to get a feel for what the buildings were like. Excellent and well worth a visit.
  • Smashing old ruins in the middle of nowhere, some great photos to be taken :-) Great atmosphere, steeped in history, quite a walk up from road but well worth it :-)
