Cadair Ifan Goch

Natural Rock Feature


Imaginative locals back in the day reckoned this rocky crag, with some excellent views along Dyffryn Conwy - not to mention across the valley to the northern Carneddau - was a favoured perch of a giant... presumably, to judge by his name, a redhead and therefore not to be trifled with.

Apparently said giant was fond of standing with one foot here and the other upon Pen y Gaer across the way whilst stooping to drink from the Afon Conwy. There are arguably easier ways to slake one's thirst.
