Carn Saith-Wraig



These two cairns lie high in the Cambrian Mountains to the South east of Tregaron. They can be reached by walking up an old drove road from a remote chapel at Soar y Myndd on the mountain rd heading towards Builth Wells. As you reach the summit of the track there are several finger like mounds on the left hand side. The cairns lie at the far end of these alongside a sheep fold. Soon after the hillside drops away into a steep sided valley.

My Welsh speaking friend tells me Saith Wraig translates to Seven Women.
