Visited 9.7.13

East of the main Twr Pen-Cyrn Carins.

Saw this Cairn marked on the O/S map and thought I would go and try to find it.

The whole area is covered in heather with many small clusters of stones scattered here and there. Did I actually find the Cairn? In honesty I don’t know. I probably did amongst the ‘natural’ piles of stones. Either way there are fantastic views to be had from this part of Mynydd Llangatwg – even better than from the main Cairns.

COFLEIN states:
‘A cairn, 12.5m in diameter and 1.3m high, slightly disturbed centrally by shepherds’.

By the way, I wonder how do they know shepherds were responsible?
