Just south of Bronwydd Arms, take the minor road west off the A484.

The Hillfort itself is not much to write home about; not much to see other than a large conical mound – no sign of any ditch or rampart. There are decent views to be had from the top. Not worth the effort of a special visit.

COFLEIN describes the site:
'A Hillfort defined by natural slopes on two, opposing sides and artificial slopes on the remaining sides'.
