Foel Llwyd and Tal y Fan from the bwlch car park. Enjoyed scrambling on the rocks either side of the ridge. Quite a fine top with gorgeous coastal views, a pefect accompaniment a nice long, late lunch by the trig point. Returned vis the path by the col and visited the stone circle en route back to the car park.Jake99415/06/2019

nice circular walk from the a village I cant remember the name of pub had a great pub and we visited a very old church on way down.jmistry8605/05/2018
From car park at road-end at Bwlch y Ddeufaen. Solo. Past the two standing stones and on path on NW and N sides of walls to Foel Lwyd. Continued on path towards Tal y Fan. At col crossed stile to E side of wall where OS 1:25,000 map shows path. Reached trig point and stood on rock close-by, which is the highest point. Crossed stile to the other side of wall and used path on this side of wall to descend to col - it's slightly easier on this side of the wall. Followed outward route back to car park. Good weather and good views.pwbellarby14/04/2018
