  • 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 »

  • Great fun had exploring the remains while surrounded by beautiful vistas. Well worth a visit plus it's free!
  • 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
  • Nice Castle ruin, with great views. Kids loved it.
  • An unstaffed site, and not easy to get to (access is via single lane B road with passing places). Well worth the effort as the site has great views. We picked up the guide book in advance at the cadr shop at Harlech Castle, which proved to be invaluable in understanding the few standing walls
