We found this with our sat nav while driving through Wales. Close to the road, with free car park we had to check it out. Not much left of what it was once a great castle but the views are well worth the climb.

Well worth the climb up to the castle to look at the views. Lovely views in each direction. Steep hill so not great for people with mobility issues. Small car park across the road. Great spot for a picnic.
