|Parked as for Castle-an-Dinas then visited the tumulus then other top just in case with Iain Brown.||Dugswell2||11/03/2017|
|From s, car park signposted from road, as Castle-an-Dinas. 2 artificial grassy mounds 70m apart, vying for top spot, each 1m higher than surrounding ground.||RHW||27/11/2016|
|Easy 200 yard stroll with my daughter from the surprisingly capacious car park to the S. High point is obviously the bump in the centre of the fort - higher than the fortifications themselves for once. 360 degree views & a topograph nearby. Lovely little hill.||wheresthepath||28/05/2015|
|Visited whilst in the area geocaching.||CornishGazza||13/10/2012|

Walking diary extract:- 'The car park for Castle Downs is down a rough track and round the back of a house or building of some kind. The weather was as bad as ever and I struggled with my boots in the front of the car. We set forth at last in the driving rain up a track to a kissing gate. Beyond the gate we dropped into a ditch then over a hump. These two features form the ‘ring’ of this hill fort. Walking towards the centre of the circle we came upon the obvious highest point and I took the obligatory summit photo.'||David Gradwell||06/04/2009|
