There is a bit of controversy on what sections of Criccieth Castle were constructed by the Welsh and what sections were constructed by the English and during what time period.


Land of Castles

of Wales


Criccieth Castle sits high on a rocky promontory on Tremadog Bay on the beginning of the Llŷn Penisula.


The massive two towers of the main gatehouse are very imposing, particularly when viewed from below looking up the slope at the castle.


There is a narrow path from the inner castle curtain wall to the remains of the outer curtain wall is the small outer ward or bailey of Criccieth Castle.


This photograph is of the remains of some castle walls looking westward along the shoreline of the Llŷn Penisula.
