Aran Fawddwy

Round Cairn

Aran Fawddwy (Round Cairn) by GLADMAN Aran Fawddwy's summit cairn is so large - c4m according to our friends at Coflein - that it virtually seems part of the mountain itself..... here we look towards the (cairnless) sister peak of Aran Benllyn, its twin 'humps' perhaps suggesting no monument was deemed necessary as Nature already had it sussed? Arenig Fawr, crowned by another great cairn (doubling as a memorial to a B17 crew) can be seen top left, with Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) also visible.
