  • It is a bit of a climb from the tiny car park to get to this ruined castle, but well worth it. The views all around are truely stunning.  more »

  • After a short walk up a steep hill, you are met with fantastic 360 views of the Welsh country side, as well as the ruins of a castle with and exciting history.
  • A steep climb to reach the castle, good views from the top. Not a huge amount of castle left, but there is plenty of information available there.
  • A fair walk up a steep hill but lovely when you get there
  • Love this old castle brill for walks pretty long steep climb from the car park(free) but it's a castle so being easy would be kinda is pretty much mostly ruins but you do get a feel for how it would of been to stand here centuries ago,the views across the valley are spectacular there's no entrench fee so a brill day out for the whole family,bring a camera and drinks.....
  • Obvious modern fabrication. Nonsensical construction. Perpendicular walls not tied into each other. Phony round towers. Inconsistent stonework. Recently faked "water well". Romantic narrative. Archaeologists were paid handsomely to invent history here! 😭
