Clegyr Boia, view east
The eastern end of the hillfort/rock mound looking over to the city of St David's clustered around the cathedral at its core, the lowest point.
The legend is that Boia, the local chieftain in St David's time, using this outcrop as his vantage point "with invidious malignity overlooked the anchorite's calm retirement" (Richard Fenton, 1811)until he was himself slain by a rival.
The word Clegyr means cairn or stony place.
