Continuation of walk from Marilyn Craig y Castell. Descended via eastern flank of the Marilyn to cross walled track, then up though broken wall to a high wall (no breaches in it) topped with barbed wire - this proved tricky to climb, but easiest place is close to junction with a north-south wall. Then up beside this latter wall over a minor top to summit - a rock outcrop some 10m west of the wall. Whole area had been recently subject to a wildfire, still smouldering in places - most unpleasant. Walk continued to Dolgledr. With AT and JT.marktrengove11/04/2015
After Dol Gledr. Descent NE steep but ok, gate by small outbuilding.RHW22/11/2014
Pay & display car park at SH 69780 15275. Craig y Castell West Top - Dol Gledr - Craig y Castell [Tyn-y-llwyn] - Tyn-y-llwyn South Top - Tyn-y-llwyn Far South Top - Craig y Castell. Returned along the shore of Llyn Gwernan. Once out on the tops, apart from the return, this is a rough walk for hardened hill-baggers only.David Gradwell21/08/2012
Good round walk around this oddly lumpy hill group. Great views of the Cadair. This top had remains of some walls.ChinnockC08/04/2003
