Ring Cairn


Visited 21.8.13

See directions for Mynydd Aberdare. Once you have parked up follow the edge of the trees south (along a rough track) and the Cairn is a just before you reach the electricity pylons.
Assuming you can spot it of course!

In a nutshell I couldn’t find it!
The ground here is undulating and covered in long, rough grass.
Good luck if you come looking. Even Coflein says it is ‘barely visible’.

Coflein states:
‘This 14m diameter ring cairn is surrounded by a 0.2m high circular turf-covered stone bank with a gap in S side. The cairn is barely visible. Sited on S moorland slopes under rough grass’
