Y Garn is a subsidiary summit of Plynlimon and the fourth highest peak on the Plynlimon massif, a part of the Cambrian Mountains. It is in Cardiganshire, west of the border with Montgomeryshire.

The summit is marked by a large shelter cairn, hollowed out from an ancient burial cairn. The views are widespread over the Cambrian range, including Rhos Fawr, Drygarn Fawr, Pen y Garn to the south and Aran Fawddwy, Glasgwm, Tarrenhendre and Tarren y Gesail to the north.

The Nant-y-moch Reservoir can also be seen to the north, with the smaller summits of Drosgol (1,805 feet) and Banc Llechwedd-mawr (1,837 feet).[1]
