Mynydd Tarw, Y Berwyn

Round Cairn


There is (apparently) a large round cairn sited at the 2,234ft summit of Mynydd Tawr - 'The Hill of the Bull' - rising to the east of the main Berwyn ridge above Cwm Maen Gwynedd. These main Berwyn summits are, of course, crowned with numerous funerary cairns of their own.

Despite being on 'the list' for a number of years now, I have yet to visit. I live in hope.

Anyway, according to Coflein:

"Cairn at summit of hill, circular shape (hollow in middle), 3.5m diameter in centre, up to 0.9m high in places, 10m diameter outside..... Possible mound 50 yards North East of cairn, similar size. (A.C.K. Roseveare & N.A.R. Vaughan, AP, 29/03/2007)"
