Yr Wyddfa

Cairn(s) (Destroyed)

Yr Wyddfa (Cairn(s)) by GLADMAN Clogwyn y Garnedd ('Crag of the Cairn').... the great eastern flank of Yr Wyddfa ('the Tomb'), viewed in stark silhouette from the north. The siting of - surely - the former Bronze Age cairn is, to my mind, frankly awesome. Incidentally, the sunlit ridge leading to Y Lliwedd, beyond, bears Bwlch y Saethau (Pass of the Arrows), a reference to a battle Arthur is said to have fought here in lore. Glaslyn, source of the river, is just visible extreme bottom left. Once again we have a (presumed) Bronze Age cairn overlooking a nascent river.
