Proceeding on from Pen Lan we came to Mynydd Drumau, a marilyn, via the Carreg Bica (or Maen Bradwen) megalith. Impressive for its height, it was (is?) a parish boundary marker. The Mynydd Drumau trig is on a boundary wall between fields currently growing a mixed grass/clover crop. Pillar in good condition with original cap in place; 1 sight hole open. Very good panoramic views - W to Swansea; S to Bristol Channel; N & E to hills.

not using a GPS to find the pillars, this trig point was rather illusive, hiding behind a wall,

Accessed from bridleway to SE below hotel. Steep climb up good path to meet summit ridge at Carreg Bica. It is worth walking the whole summit ridge to enjoy the views.

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters. Pasture, N side of ruined wall. Pleasant summit, nice views, pleasant walk from S after the Rugby Club trig visit, then revisited Pen Lan on the way down - perfect end to a very scenic day.

We carried on to Mynydd Drumau after visiting Pen Lan. Follow the bridle path and approach the trig from the south west, which involves one gate. The pillar is on the north side of the intermittent wall. A pleasant walk through sheepy fields. Plug with indented lettering.
