  • A really beautiful landmark, sitting atop its hill overlooking the Towy Valley. The nearby car park makes this a very easy visit and the panoramic views over the Towy Valley are not to be missed! Well worth a visit if you're in the area.
  • Really good views on clear day, shame you can't go inside tower and lacking interpretation, but worth a look if you are near by just for the views. National Trust, no charge.
  • Lovely place worth seeing if you can get there just before sunset.
  • Great views of the Towy Valley.
  • A must when visiting wales. beautiful views and lots of history.
