Burial Chamber


It's a fair walk to the stones, so go prepared. Park by the road near the golf course and follow the footpath (it's not a big one but you can see it). If you come across a long cliffy rock face you've gone too far. Retrace till you pick up the path again. When you come to a house with the path on the left hand side, you're nearly there. Then down and right, and the stones are in a field to the left.

Funny stones these. I presume it was a burial chamber, but a capstone on them would be very precarious, so its no wonder its gone. Very white stones stand out against the rocky hills. Just twenty yards to the S.W is a rocky outcrop with faint cupmarks and in a line (ish).

Moel-y-Gest has a hillfort on top. Fantastic place. Mountains, forest, and sea all meet in one place and you can see Criccieth castle too. Even the kids loved it.
