Aran Fawddwy

Round Cairn

Aran Fawddwy (Round Cairn) by GLADMAN To my knowledge there is but the one ancient cairn gracing the the high Arans... (if you know otherwise, thank you)... so it is perhaps fitting that this is (according to Coflein) a massive c4m high monument surmounting the 2,969ft summit of Aran Fawddwy, the sentinel peak... overlooking the source of the Afon Dyfi within the Creiglyn Dyfi (as you might expect).

The viewpoint here is just north of Bwlch y Groes, looking approx west, early one morning late October 2011. The (cairnless) sister peak Aran Benllyn can be seen top right.
