Castel-y-Bere map

For both: Stay on this road all the way to the foot of the cliffs at Bird Rock where you come to a T-junction. Turn left and continue past Bird Rock until you come to a junction where Abergynolwyn is signed to the right and the road ahead is marked as 'no through road'. There is also a telephone box at this junction.

Take the road ahead. After about half a mile go up a short rise with the Castell-y-Bere rock on the left. (You cannot see the ruins from the road).

Just at the top there is a lay-by/car park on the left with a notice board. Park here.
