Carn Briw

Round Cairn


Visited 2nd May 2004: We approached Carn Briw in a straight line from Carn Ingli Camp. It's easy to spot on the horizon, but mainly because the cairn material has been seriously re-arranged. From a distance it looks like a crumpled cone.

On closer inspection the extent of the damage is obvious. One side of the cairn has been piled up high, presumably by walkers. Where the cairn remains at something like its original height an enclosure has been made in it.

Despite the mess, Carn Briw is a pleasant place to visit. It's off the beaten track for most people visiting Carn Ingli, so relatively tranquil. Also well placed for visiting the hut circles to the south west.
