Speak to Hyacinth Olivier who is located in "Cragcroft" which is southeast on the world map. There you will receive the Side Quest.
The Clagmar Castle Ruins is past the "Clagmar Castle" Fast Travel. If you are heading there for the first time, then follow the trace of quest.
Since the required level for the quest is 37, Selwyn, one of the infamous foes, is very powerful. There are a lot of mob enemies, so if you are heading straight through then you might struggle with the mob enemies. If you are challenging at a low level or on Hard mode, use Stealth Kill to defeat the mobs before challenging Selwyn.▶All Infamous Foes List & Location
First Lure The Mob Enemies And Then Deal With Them
First lure the mob enemies that are around Selwyn with basic spells, then defeat them with "Petrificus Totalus" (Stealth Kill). It will be a pain if the Ranger is left on top of the cliffs, so make sure you don't forget to defeat all of them.
How To Easily Defeat Selwyn
You can defeat Selwyn easily by using "Disillusionment" then attack with Petrificus Totalus, and deal more damage with Attack spells, then even if you're in the Hard Mode, you should be able to easily defeat him.
How To Defeat Selwyn In A Regular Way
While Selwyn is casting Electric spells, you can use Expelliarmus to drop his wand, which allows you to consecutively attack with no risk in the time he picks up his wand. If you don't miss the timing, then you will be able to easily defeat him.
After you defeat Selwyn, go back to "Cragcroft" and speak to Olivier and the quest will be completed. Depending on the dialogue you choose, the reward and the cutscene will change.
