From town Centre (Market free parking) to make a walk of it alongside the Wye. Fab sunny day, steep climb, map useless. Follow your nose up the path from the layby on A470 980 672 and head SE then S straight for Cairn (which also has a beacon fire basket next to it). Oh, the views of Rhayader and surrounding hills is top draw.dicky31/08/2013
