Unfortunately, I wasn't to know that there was work going on there to make some of the masonry safe. This meant that I couldn't go in and have a good poke around. Which is a shame, but not the end of the world.
The castle is in a lovely setting (though, of course, that's not why it is where it is) sitting in the bottom of a beautiful green valley with a large stream running by it and trees all around.
|You can see some of the work being carried out, and also that the sun went in just as I was taking the photo. I think the tree is behind the castle rather than growing out of the middle of it, but I like the effect.|

Next time, Llanberis Pass and Caernarfon Castle
