This site is well worth a visit. There are great walks from the fort up over the nearby mountains. the views are spectacular and so is the wild life. Get your walking boots on and give it a visit.

A circular walk takes you through and round this dramatic hill fort; we were thrilled to spot a Great Grey Shrike - very rare in UK

There is an information board in the small car park with good directions, and within 10 minutes the views are quite exillirating . Walk a little further and the experience increases. Good open air attraction for people who like solitude. At no cost
