Foel Drygarn translates as ‘Bare Hill of the Three Cairns’ and, as the name suggests, there are 3 enormous Bronze Age burial cairns at the 363m-high summit. During the Iron Age, a hill fort was added, with defensive ramparts and huts. Aerial photographs reveal hundreds of circular depressions in the ground, thought to be the foundations of the huts. Legend says that there’s a hoard of gold beneath the flat stone known as Bwrdd y Brenin (‘King’s Table’). But we think you’ll find the 360-degree views of the Teifi Valley, the Preseli Hills and – on a clear day - the Irish Sea reward enough for your climb.
