Castle ruins very interesting with great veiws of the Towy valley. Dogs allowed but always on lead as there are sheep around. Lovely spot.

On a bit of a damp and misty day, we ventured up to the Castle. Lovely view of the river. Bit muddy underfoot so make sure you bring wellies or good walking boots. Picnic area in the car park very muddy.

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.
