Moel Goedog



After some 20 years walking the Welsh Hills I finally 'bothered' to haul my aching frame up here... suffice to say it was 20 years too late. Muppet.

Although the ramparts are bisected by very substantial drystone walls, there's still quite a bit to be seen. If you can tear your eyes away from the majestic view of the Dwyryd Estuary, with Central Snowdonia's peaks rising beyond, that is.

The Italianate - and frankly, bonkers - Portmeirion is visible to the right of Porthmadog across the water [I am not a number, I am a free man...etc] and The Rhinogydd rear up to the south-east, offering some of the roughest walking in these Isles.

I can't imagine this hilltop offered the most comfortable living of the Iron Age, but I'd say it arguably possesses the finest views of any in the UK. Why, there's even two cairn circles below to the west.....

Postman's directions are spot on.
