Wonderful views of the whole Dee valley and surrounding countryside. Harebells growing from the castle walls were enchanting.

A short walk from Llangollen followed by a short but steep climb, and you arrive at a surprising, picturesque ruin with spectacular views. I would have preferred a little more obvious information boards at more than one location (I managed to miss the one board...More

You can drive to 5 roadside parking spaces where it’s a 10 minute climb to marvellous views. The ruins are limited but you’ll be looking past them across the valleys anyway. Great place

It is a free hike that leads you to an old castle. There are 360 views of the entire area from the town of Llangollen to neighboring valleys filled with sheep, flowers and lush fields filled with flowers. The sun hits the valley at sunset...More
