Fantastic views from the top. Not an easy path steep in places. You will have to be fairly fit to attempt it, but it is achievable if you take your time.

How those guys lugged all that stone up that hill all those years ago is beyond me, the view is outstanding and you can certainly see the enemy coming and the cold wind.

Lovely view from top overlooking county. Information boards halfway up giving information and history about the castle. Bit of a climb up hill but worth it when you get up there.

The walk up is hard work but thanks to very well made paths it's easier than it looks. Once at the summit you can spend a good half hour exploring the ruined castle and taking pictures. Well worth the walk!

Not much of the castle survives, although what does is very evocative. However, what really matters is the spectacular views, both from the castle up and down the Dee valley and of the castle from the surrounding countryside. Tip: the climb to the castle from Llangollen town centre is very demanding, energy expended can be much reduced by approaching from... More

for the general fit and healthy person this walk is fairly step, but its short. about 10 - 15 minutes to the top.(assuming you park just by the cattle grids at the bottom of the hill). If you cant walk up the larger mountains in N Wales this is an excellent option and offers a fabulous castle at the top... More
