Drygarn Fawr (Cairn(s)) by GLADMAN Photo taken June 1995... I've aged a bit since then, but remain the dedicated Citizen Cairn'd early encounters such as this clearly inspired. Yeah, just what is something like this doing upon what is a contender for Wales' most remote 2,000 footer, a modern - not to mention giant - beehive cairn surmounting the original Bronze Age footprint? Was this how the original looked? Maybe not, I guess, but considering there is little surface rock in the vicinity I'd surmise much of this stone was brought to the site 'back then'. To paraphrase Mr Morecombe..... everything's here, but not necessarily in the right order.
