I literally blundered upon this last year... to my mind, with the associated long cairn, one of the finest monuments in all Scotland that I've had the pleasure of seeing. Visualise a larger Grey Cairns of Camster intact and unopened.... presumably with the original inhabitants still located within. As I sat here in the fading light that thought completely blew my mind. Kipping above Kilmartin in May I fell in love with the place once again. It gets a massive press... and rightly so. But in my opinion it can't hold a candle to the Strath of Kildonan. Why is that? You need to get back here and spread the word with your popular appeal since I reckon it can make a lot of people happy.
I love this photo Geoff. I took one of the sun going down at Wayland's very close to the Winter Solstice. The sun hit the front of the barrow so this beautifully illustrates its 'journey' along the horizon
Purely a personal view... but I wouldn't recommend the route from Aber Falls to Llwytmor, certainly not directly up the ridge. Assuming you value your knees? The Afon Goch's an option, if boggy, but following the Anafon valley to the reservoir and ascending from there is arguably a better bet.
Good lord that sounds dreadful, if only there was some way we could transport ourselves round :)
I quite liked the lunatics, nice to know there's madder folk than myself.
Terrific bike ride from the falls back to the car.
I was sitting on a train for 5 hours, surrounded by moaning and confused people who couldn't find their correct seats despite a perfectly sequential numbering system being displayed. Damn right I would've loved it up there.
Great pics, better without the running lunatics I suspect. Llwytmor from Aber Falls, that's the other option for getting up here, similar distance probably.
