Aberyscir Castle is a large and overgrown ditched motte on a promontory site overlooking the confluence of the Yscir with the larger River Usk. The site is to the rear of private gardens and can only be accessed through them, so permission must be gained to see it. The proximity of the old church is suggestive of a small plantation manor.
