A nice walk up to the top (steep in places so not suitable for elderly/disabled). It's a ruin so not much to see but nice views over the Welsh Marches

You can find a parking spot, probably. It's basically what you see is what you get - a couple of boards giving history, a good view of the local bowling club green (built on part of the earthworks), and generally not much. Nice scenery, which I expected, but it didn't take me long to go around it all. It's not... More

a marvelous ruined castle in the Clun valley; we discovered it by 'accident' looking for a good walk. In the sunshine it's very picturesque, but as on a hill quite windy. Choose a warm day to visit! Wheel chair access to the main parts difficult, but could get a chair /buggy up to view from the Bowls club.

We spent a lovely hour or so exploring the ruins and our daughter loved climbing up the banks to the top. Interesting boards tell you of the history. Apart from the bridge over the river, much of it is pushchair / wheelchair friendly and you can get almost to the top part with little trouble at all. We did in... More

Clun Castle and town have a very interesting history, the castle is a ruin on a large mound by Clun river with lots of wildlife and a variety of different species of ducks. Clun itself consists of various ages of buildings worth a walk around.

The countryside around Clun is just lovely. Rolling hills that become more wild as you go west and into the Cambrians. The Offa's Dyke and Glyndwr's Way paths are close but you can easily choose a route on which you are unlikely to see another walker all day. The Castle on the edge of the village is free. It's a...

There is a nice steep walk up to the castle ruins. Not very good for wheelchair access. A remarkable ruin and ideal for walking the dogs or having a picnic. Toilet facilities in the car park across the bridge.

Doctor Johnson's aphorism is probably warranted with respect to the ruins of Clun Castle which are not extensive, although the castle's elevated location shows exactly why it was chosen to keep an eye on the Welsh Marches. Clun itself is, though, worth visiting as, with its two quaint pubs, 15th Century bridge over a willow-hung stream full of ducks, it... More
