Visited 15th August 2003: I've not walked up to this fort but I've seen it many times from the road. It looks like there's a distinctive winding path leading up to it on the south side. There were people coming down it when I took the photo, but I've no idea whether there's public access or not.

The site was adapted into a motte and bailey castle during the Middle Ages (Castell Cadwaladr).
