About

The shorter of two walks, at just a few hundred metres long introduces some of the fascinating Bronze Age and Stone Age features on the northern western edge of Llyn Brenig. The trail starts at the car park to the north east of Llyn Brenig and from there follows the road to Broncyn Arian and the Ring Cairn. Nearby there is a large stone marking a Mesolithic camp - where ashes from fires, and flint tools were found and dated to 5,700BC. The trail finishes by crossing the road and climbing to a Hafotai Settlement - dating from the 16th Century. Follow the longer route - 2 miles long - to learn more about the history of this ancient landscape. Parking and facilities available at Llyn Brenig Visitor Centre. A free leaflet, ‘Man at Brenig’, is available from the Visitor Centre which gives further information about the walk and the history and archaeology of the area.
