Kerbed Cairn


From the massive bulk of Tyr Gwyn Mawr I reckoned I could find the two smaller cairns away to the east, just follow the path, how hard can it be ?
With the ferocious wind blocked by the hillside, it should have been even easier than I'd anticipated as its got five wooden posts around it, but no, I shunned these obvious markers of something and made for the hilltop, it wasnt there. But from my vantage point I could map read enough to tell it must at least be near those obvious markers of something. (Whooosh whooosh whooosh)
I staggered and stumbled back down to the five wooden posts dodging the stuff that bears have the decency to hide in the woods and the occasional boggy hole, and well bless my soul they put a cairn in the middle of these five posts. That should have made it easy to find, dont you think.
Though half hidden by my favourite of grasses it still looks a good kerb cairn, reminding me of one or two examples over the hills at Llyn Brenig, and if not for the extreme weather it would enjoy good views down the valley to the east.
