This is so worth the trek up, but not for the unfit, took about twenty mins from the lane, the view is amazing and so is the castle with lots of look outs.

We had heard there were nice walks around here but didn't expect to find such a magnificent castle, and were able to take in the breath taking views alone from there over the bay.

We walked from Llanstephan on the Wales coastal path then visited the castle. Though in ruins there is still sufficient of the walls standing to gain insight into its grandeur. Excellent views from the grounds over the estuary and coast.
