Castell y Gwynt is a top of Glyder Fach in Snowdonia, north-west Wales. It has the merit of being the only 3000 ft Welsh summit classed as only a Nuttall, hence it is not included in the Welsh 3000s. It has a prominence of 15.7 m (51.5 ft), and was only included on the Nuttall's list after re-surveying in 2007. The top is more famous as a feature than a summit.
"Castell y Gwynt" and the "Cantilever Stone" were used in Walt Disney's Dragonslayer.
There's a hiking trail (T1) leading to the summit. Castell Y Gwynt is one of the 17 peaks along the Welsh Three Thousands.
