This landmark is a must do if you’re physically able. I am 65 and my husband 70 and we found it relatively easy to climb. The views at the top are incredible! Bearing in mind we did it on a cold February day it definitely...More

Not for the faint hearted. Expect a steep hill climb for about an hour to reach the top and the castle. But once you are there, the view is worth every step.

This is a nice walk from town, depending on fitness maybe a 40 min stroll up and a little quicker back. There isn't a lot left of the castle, but the views of the country side are lovely and a little of the castle in...More

A short hike from Llangollen Bridge will take you to the foot of this high hill, topped by the broken teeth of Castell Dinas Bran, or Crow Castle. This was the home of the legendary beauty, Myfanwy Fechan, whose cold heart is celebrated, to this...More

Not an easy walk by any means, it's quite steep in certain areas, but definitely worth it for a look at the ruins and for the magnificent views at the top. Sturdy shoes recommended! Ideal for dogs as well. There is cheap parking available nearby...More

If you drive as close as possible to the footpath, it takes about 20-30 minutes. A good pair of walking boots advised.
