Head towards Dinas Dinnle, a small coastal village in north west Wales. Once you get to the village there is only one main road, head north up that road through the village towards the small airport.  You will then drive up to a sharp bend that has a big banner saying airport to your right, YOU GO LEFT HERE, through gates marked private and follow the road up to the fort, this is over a mile and keep on the road, (you see the airport on your right) until you reach the fort. This road is an old runway so it is long and straight.  Parking is available once you get to the fort.   There is a causeway at the Fort but we will notify you nearer the time if the tide will be in.  Don’t worry if the tide is in you can walk around the grass to get to the fort.


To Caernarfon.  We can arrange for you to be picked up in Caernarfon if you need a lift.


Mobile reception is intermittent and there are a few places around the fort where you can get a good signal.
