Cilsanws Mountain



On the A470 going north out of Merthyr Tydfil just before you get to Llwyn on village, there is a parking space for at least ten cars, park here and walk down the road towards a gate across the road from a farm, passing through the left hand gate go up hill keeping towards the left hand side of fields, this should take you straight to the ring cairn, from here you can see the mountain top cairns and the trig point to the south and lower down the hill to the north are a curving line of three cairns known as Coedcae'r Gwarthog.
There are two large cairns on this hilltop, the largest is just a few metres from the trig point(460m) and has had a shelter built out of the loose cairn material, twenty metres away is the other one, mercifully devoid of tamperings.
The view from here is pleasing to the eye, niegh, both eyes, far to the north hiding in the haze one can see Pen y fan and siblings, but just a few hundred metres away the ring cairn can't be made out.
