Doesn't get much better than this - a summer's day on the Mynydd Du! Carreg yr Ogof a limestone outlier north of the main crop, with wonderful limestone pavement and outcrops - like Viennetta! Walked over from Herbert's Quarry, also bagged Foel Fraith and Garreg Las. A top location

11 mile walk from pass, over Cefn Y Cylchau, Garreg Las and along to Carreg Yr Ogof trig, back over Garreg Las and along ridge over Foel Fraith and onto Garreg Lwyd to trigs, then back to car via Carn Pen-Rhiw-Ddu, then drove to and bagged Trichrug trig and Carn Goch later that day. Nice weather with clear views.

Picked up this trig after visiting Garreg Lwyd and Garreg Las. Marvellous panoramic views across the western end of the national park. Pillar in good condition, paint starting to fade close up, but from a distance it's still brilliantly white with the sun striking it, as it was on this lovely day. Cap missing, no plug; 1 sight hole open. OS database refers to a previous pillar here with this one replacing it in 1956, but no mention of it on T:UK?!?

Bagged this on a walk from the car park at the top of the A4069 to TP Trecastle (Carmarthen Fans) and TP Gareg Lwyd on return leg. Superb weather, wild country. Saw eight persons on the Fans, but alone for the rest of the day. Great views from this TP.

Glorius trig. These are the ones I really do it for. Approached same as RW, and parked in a similar spot I think. It's a fair ascent, and my 6 months chained to a desk writing a thesis definitely showed. Near to the red kite feede ing station so there were kites everywhere!

In 1990 the trigpoint had English Go Home written on it. As mentioned in Best Walks in Southern Wales by Richard Sale.

This is a wonderful trig. It is off the main ridge so therefore a lot less walkers around. It has fine views, a great rocky and grassy summit and the trig itself is in good condition. I agree with the RW that this is nicer than the main summit. A good contender for my ashes!

Good condition and very accessible - just a bit of a climb, but the view is worth it when you get there.

I normally visit Twyn Swyd from the West but for a change I opted for a northern approach with the trig en route. Parking was fun "no parking" signs proliferate at the bridleway departure at Gelligron and having nearly got stuck on my next attempt I eventually went half a mile back and parked by the last bridge. The walk in is then a moderate ascent on relatively dry ground. Trig in good shape with lots of paint and no long term issues

Impressive. Most impressive. But better, by far, is the walk from here to TP6568, along the ridge. A photo of the marvellous view is included!

after negotiating fields, hedges and barbed wire, onto open moor. lambs everywhere in home pastures. steeper slopes led up to a stepped limestone area in terraces - like a rock garden. trig freshly painted. views over valley to Gareg Llwyd and G Las.
