Dinas Emrys - Dinas Castle Hill Fort

Archaeology from the site points to the site being occupied in the Iron Age, Roman and early medieval periods. It is on a wooded hill above the Glaslyn river valley with the remains of the base of a keep and stone ramparts only left of the later Welsh castle. In Arthurian legend it is associated with Vortigern and Merlin whose advice he sought in building a castle here. The site is about one mile northeast of Beddgelert on the A498.
