Mynydd Mawr

Round Cairn

Mynydd Mawr (Round Cairn) by GLADMAN Note the unusual (significant?) 'halo' effect of Moel Hebog rising above Mynydd Drws-y-coed... I reckon there is a top vibe to be had here.

The Nantlle ridge doesnt look too bad from here, unlike from by the Y Garn cairns.
A top vibe indeed.

Strange though how such massive cairns can't be seen from anywhere except Mynydd Drws-y-coed, though? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Strange indeed.
The gods can see them though I presume.

Hi Gladman. Is the lake in the shot situated in the Nantlle valley? An if so, are we looking east south eastish? And finally, if so again, would Yr Wyddfa then be behind and to the left? ryaner Posted by ryaner

Hi Rayner. As Postie said - I think he's got a bit of a thing for Snowdonia, no shit Sherlock - we are indeed looking more or less south-east with Snowdon to the left. Technically I say the lake is actually in Nant Colwyn, with the Dyffryn Nantlle heading away out of frame to the right. Incidentally would love to get to the Drws-y-Coed settlement one day.... looks rather good. Think they were after copper. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
