With trimarc2. Started out in the gorgeous sunshine - weather deteriorated but not our festive spirits! Fan Hir, Fan Brycheiniog, Picws Du, Waun Lafrith, Garreg Las. Finished with a late lunch in front of the fire at Tafarn-y-Garreg. Exceptional.Fionalevey19/12/2019

With E. Parked on minor road to E (Bwlch Cerrig Dion) and followed small intermittent path past ruins to Llyn y Fan Fawr. Good picnic/drink stop. Then up path to Fan Brycheiniog - Trig Point where drifting clouds limited visibility along ridge. Continued onto Fan Brycheiniog - Twr y Fan Foel and then historic county summit of Carmarthenshire at Fan Foel. Returned by same route bagging Fan Brycheiniog South - East Top on way back. Great walk just a shame the drifting clouds on the day restricted our views.Beeliner13/07/2019

A day hike with my two young children starting from the car park just past the houses at Blaenau near Llanddeusant. Followed track to Llyn y Fan Fach, before an ascent to Waun Lefrith (677m), from where the cliff edge was followed to Picws Du (749m). A descent was made before climbing again to the Carmarthenshire high point of Fan Foel (781m), and then Fan Brycheiniog (802m). Descending from Fan Foel onto the Beacons Way, then back to Blaenau. A fine sunny day, with a total 13.4km distance and 785m ascent.

Stopped off here to bag the Trig and to take advantage of the shelter from the wind! Walked from the farm via the reservoir road and round the ridge (anti-clockwise). Very windy during the day but amazing visibility - we could see Exmoor rising over the channel!Bambography27/10/2012
