Fan Foel


Fan Foel (Cairn(s)) by GLADMAN Showing the cist, centre left, now sporting a brand new cairn of the walkers' variety. I was going to demolish it... but then reasoned this is one of those annoying summit cairns which might actually serve a purpose by protecting the cist from passing muppets' boots. Needless to say I had to remove a plastic bottle and sundry rubbish.

Yeah, I rearranged it a bit before I left in order to better protect the cist... but no doubt it will grow and grow. Having said that, in many respects it is fascinating how people in mountain landscapes just HAVE to erect cairns. Is this something deep within our psycology?

Very impressed with the way the kerb had been exposed during excavation... plonk this down on a lowland hill and it would be a marvellous Welsh site. But up here... words fail me.
