Well worth the jaunt up the side for nice views over to the town. It's not to much strife if your reasonable with your pace. I encapsulated this as part of an 18 miler and found the walk up mild but really worth it.

It's only about a mile outside of town and it's not too strenuous but you get really good views and a breath of fresh air.

After a pleasant climb the views are magnificent in every direction. The climb up is not too arduous.

A great work out to reach the top,tho you can choose the easier path made for an ascent rather than try to go straight up the steep grassy banks. A great view from the top. We even had a buzzard flying below us along the cliff edge. The ruins of he castle may not be as imposing as some but... More

Beautiful old ruin with breathtaking scenery all round. It's easier to walk up from the back but it's still quite a steep climb from either side but definitely worthwhile.

We walked from Llangollen town, over the bridge and up past the canal where the walk is well signposted. We then did a circular walk around the hill of the castle and then up to it from behind which worked out nicely, it took about 3 hours in total and wasnt too difficult as long as you have a reasonable...

This place is just absolutely beautiful! Even though we walked up in the middle of Jan and it was cold the sun was shining and it was just lovely... views are fab. Can't wait to go back when it's a bit warmer and spend some more time up there.

This a great place to visit, especially on a sunny day. The walk up is good exercise, but worth the effort. You cant visit the area and not go up,

I've been up to the castle ruins many times over the years and the panoramic 360 degree views with plenty to look at never fail to amaze. If you drive up to the ruins be prepared for a steep climb that may take you around ten minutes depending upon your fitness level. The path is on the grass so you... More
