About Castle An Dinas
1 mile North of the A30 at Goss Moor (OS Map 200; ref SW 945624) near St Columb Major. Access is easy, once you find the right road. Follow the minor road East-South-East from the A39 roundabout at St Columb Major. Castle an Dinas is marked on the road sign at this roundabout. The turning to the hillfort is about a mile and half along this road. A car-park is located about 400 metres up this track.
Castle-an-Dinas is one of the largest and most impressive hillforts in Cornwall, sited in an imposing position on the summit of Castle Downs with extensive and panoramic views across central Cornwall to both north and south coasts. It dates from around the second and third centuries BCE and consists of three ditch and rampart concentric rings, 850 feet in diameter and standing 700 feet above sea level.
