Carnedd Moel y Ci



Moel y Ci - "Dog Hill" - is a north-western outlier of Y Glyderau, rising to 1,345ft and boasting panoramic vistas across The Menai Straight to Anglesey... as well as - looking the other way - the mountainous heartland of Central Snowdonia. All in all, well worth the short, sharp ascent undertaken from Rhiwlas, set below to the west. Hey, there's even an apparent Romano-British hut circle to be seen on the way.

However if one is of the 'Antiquarian persuasion'..... the presence of a massive Bronze Age round cairn (Carnedd Moel y Ci) complete with cist/possible kerbing still in situ, makes a visit a real 'no-brainer'. Not that the traveller won't have to use his/her brain rather a lot to take in the excellent upland vibe to be enjoyed here... but you know what I mean.
