Spectacularly sited Harlech Castle seems to grow naturally from the rock on which it is perched. Like an all seeing sentinel, it gazes out across land and sea, keeping a watchful eye over Snowdonia.

It was one of the most formidable of his ‘iron ring’ of fortresses designed to contain the Welsh in their mountain fastness.
