A steep climb up well made up paths to the top. Just some ruins but the views across the valley are great.

the access is not easy to find and if you have limited time, just skip it. We had great fun finding the place and walking- climbing the hill. It's a sheep pasture (which got us extra glances and questions at the USA custom check). The view is terrific once you reach the top.

Walked up from Llangollen, then walked on to Trevor and back to Llangollen via the canal. Views were stunning, good photographic opportunity,

Choose a calm fine day and walk from Llangollen up the steep hill on a clear track to this historic ruin with fine views to the mountains. You need to be moderately fit, but here's a longer and shallow route as an alternative.

I've lived in the area for many years & I can't believe I've never visited before. The weather on this visit was terrible, but will be arranging a return visit very soon as the views are stunning (what we COULD see!!)
