We had taken a bit longer over Cyrniau than we expected so were looking for shorter 'bagging' walks for the afternoon. This was simple, though steeply up the ESE side of the hill, from the end of the drive to Allt Goch. Access to pasture through a gate. From the top, the W side looked easier and feasible.pwheeler05/05/2019
