If you go to Llangollen, this is really worth a visit. Incredibly beautiful views but not for the faint of heart as quiet a steep walk. I ran it and felt like my lungs were going to collapse. Amazing views though.

Dinas Bran is a ruined castle at the top of a hill just outside Llangollen. Now inhabited only by sheep, it is quite a steep walk, taking almost 1.5 hours for the round trip. Invading armies would surely be exhausted by the time they reach the top. However, one is rewarded with wonderful views of Llangollen and the Dee valley.

How often do you drive by a well know landmark such this. A birthday 'treat' to climb to the top was superb. The sun was arranged and away we went. What is left of the castle enhances the surrounding scenery and the views are quite magnificent. Well worth it for those waverers who never quite have the time - or the inclination.

This is one of our favourite walks in the Llangollen area, it is quite a stiff climb but the views are to die for! Llangollen has some fantastic walking routes, for all abilities.

Loved the trek all the way up alongside the sheep. Not too much of the castle remains to be seen but it was worth it. Might be a bit difficult to drive all the way up to the foot of the hill
