Isolated peat hag on the moortop
Isolated peat hag on the moortop
The dominant rock type across these hills is limestone, so peat hags come as something of a surprise. This one forms a sort of peat 'island', everything around it having been eroded [by the wind?]. In summer conditions the surrounding ground was mostly dry. The view is westwards towards Carn Pen-y-clogau.
