Brilliant, I very very nearly went to these yesterday (but went Carn Llechart way instead). Your weather was better though... thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

I'll hurry on with my notes if you intend to go shortly since these were a major pain to find... surrounded in high reed. Didn't find the map much use since there seemed to be many unmarked tracks. However you pass the wondrous Melincourt waterfalls en-route, so well worth the effort.

I was attracted by the 'trio' of cairns shown on the map after visiting a trio near Elan, but could only locate two. Can't exactly argue with an exposed cist, though.

I would also like to revisit Carn Llechart area again, when there's some visibility (i.e. without the hillfog) and it's not pouring with rain. There seems to be a huge amount of little-visited stuff in the hills all round Neath. I added Carn Caca ages ago with a view to going the next day, then went somewhere else instead. :-) thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
