Gors Fawr

Stone Circle


Gorse Fawr is wildly different to the nearby Pentre Ifan, but none the worse for that. It is located in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains and can be a bit tricky to find, but it's worth the effort. With my back to the nearby lane on an overcast day the stones almost seemed to be lost in the backdrop of the mountains, but when (or if) the sun comes out it's a beautiful place.

By car it's approached down some pretty narrow lanes, which were full of 'fun runners' when I visited it, so it's worth taking your time.
