About this spot
Castle of the Winds or Castell Y Gwynt in Welsh is a popular and iconic spot high up on the Glyders, a few minutes walk from the summit of Glyder Fach. It is a fantastic spot at both sunrise and sunset and the rocks provide an other world feel to the location with amazing Snowdon Horseshoe in the distance as your back drop.
