After a long morning with cold wet feet it was just fantastic to come up here with this magnificent view, the mountains, the Conwy valley behind me and Pen y Gaer hillfort to the right, and this stonking great stone.
It certainly isnt standing up and never did it either
but Coflein states that the stone was deliberatly placed here, on the hilltop for ritual/ funerary/religous purposes . It is visible from anywhere in the vicinity, aligned almost east-west and very reminiscent of the deliberatly placed stone on the other nearby hillfort summit at Caer Bach.
