Tristan's Cairn (Cairn(s)) by GLADMAN Looking across Bwlch Eryl Farchog to the Bronze Age cairn crowned Carnedd Llewelyn. What I assumed to be a 'marker cairn' upon the ascent ridge is, according to Coflein records, Tristan's Cairn [indicated]. Perhaps the prominent location - subservient to the summit monument, yet outstandingly sited above Cwm Eigiau - is instructive. Then again is the cairn too small to be Bronze Age. If so, why the folklore? So many questions...
