Lovely setting, great view of Lake Padam, easy access and no charge to visit. This is a small castle but worth the stop to view.

Well worth stopping off as you drive into Llanberris, it is set back off the road with a tiny car park and then a short walk. The fort is set over looking the lake and it's stunning back drop and is a must for a photo shoot. It is very tiny, and no charge to walk around.

Lovely place to explore with quite a special atmosphere. We found it well worth downloading the Snowdonia Heritage website audio tour, which tells you a lot more about the site:

We listened to it as we went round and it helped explain a lot about the castle. There are also some lovely walks in the woods around the castle.

Fee entry, short climb up to the castle, steps up to the top which affords a great view of Lake Padarn
