Totally agree... this looks like the atypical evocative Welsh hilltop site. Why haven't I been here yet? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Glad you like it.The best and last shot of the day due to dead batteries,so very lucky to get it.
This site isn't the usual expedition you fellers seem to favour,as it's only a stroll from the road,and it more or less has it's own little hill to itself,so not much else to find along the way. Except perhaps for the odd nice view,as you can see here.
The surrounding area generally has lots of other sites to see, and plenty more great views, so I would put this circle down on a tick list,and make a day of it. You won't go wanting for something to look at, that's for sure.

ps;I wasn't joking about feeling ill in the field notes for Banc y Celyn, I'm a firm believer now,even take an offering along with me. I favour flowers or bird seed.It seems to work, I havn't had a headache since.
