A Sunny Day Hike up the hill to Castell Dinas Bran (or Crow Castle in English) #Photography

A couple of months ago we attempted the very steep climb up to the ruined castle. Dinas Bran towers above Llangollen and the Dee Valley in a spectacular setting that offers panoramic views from all sides.

The views on the way up are beautiful. There were several stops to catch our breath and admire the scenery.

I was assured the view would be worth the climb but at this point I wasn’t very hopeful of making it. 

The crown of the hill has been fortified for centuries and according to the legend it was the refuge of the Celtic deity, Bran. A medieval castle was built on the site in the 13th century.

Watch this space to see if we made it to the top 😉
