A really good cliff top walk takes you from Carnedd y Saeson to the hillfort Maes Y Gaer, totally stunning views down the valley that has Aber falls falling into it.
Winter would best serve as a visiting time as ferns obscured much, some wide tumbled walls are all thats left on its south side, no sign of an entrance at all.
At the western extremity of the fort are the best views outside of snowdonia yet still in north wales. Anglesey and the Straits, or down to the wooded valley or along the wooded valley to the sometimes thundering Aber falls (its all gorge-ous)today its just a thin ribbon of white water due to insufficient rains, you cant have everything, don't know why though.
