Fan Brycheiniog from Picws Du
|Summit:|| 2,631 feet SN825217 |
The Beacons Way, a waymarked long distance footpath forks near the mountain, with one option passing over the summit and along the long ridge, and the other option offering a lowland route passing beside the lake Llyn y Fan Fawr to the east of the summit. This path leads to the mountain from Llanddeusant in the northwest and Glyntawe in the south-east.
In winter the mountain is spectacular and in summer provides great views.
North-west of the main summit is a slight rise called Fan Foel, which, at 2,562ft above sea level, is the highest point in the county of Carmarthen.
