Carn y Defaid
Carn y Defaid
On the broad ridge of Mynydd y Garn Fawr. The cairn - its centre is hollowed like a dish - is composed of the same rough gritstone that is strewn around the slopes of this hill, making for rough going underfoot. It is one of a pair of Bronze Age burial mounds. ('defaid' = 'sheep')
