Access to Ruperra Castle

Ruperra CastleAccess.

The drive that runs past the Castle grounds from the Lisvane Road to the Michaestone road is private - unless you live there or are visiting a resident or are taking part in an event, you cannot drive a car aong there. The drive however is a public footpath, but there is no where near to park your car.
If you are visiting the Hollybush Inn in Draethen, you can use the footpath behind the Inn to walk up through the woods and over the top to the Ruperra Castle Drive. You can also park in the Coed Craig Ruperra woodland car park on the Draethen - Michaelstone road and walk through the woodland to the drive.
Otherwise you have to be a very good walker!
Watch out for organised walks with special prking made available.
