Castell Coch ( Red Castle) is a 19th-century Gothic revival  castle built above the village of Tongwynlais in South Wales UK. The first castle on the site was built by the Normans after 1081. Abandoned shortly afterwards, the castle’s earth motte was reused by Gilbert de Clare as the basis for a new stone fortification built between 1267 and 1277 to control his freshly annexed Welsh lands. This castle was likely destroyed in the Welsh rebellion of 1314. In 1760, the castle ruins were acquired by John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute. As you can see in the last three photographs there are walks through the woods near to the castle.Good parking really nice area to visit.
