Preseli Hills

The Preseli Hills - Mynydd Preseli - are a range of hills in North Pembrokeshire which form part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National park.

The highest point is Foel Cwmcerwyn which is 536 metres above sea level. The hills are dotted with neolithic and prehistoric remains. Buestone from Carn Menyn or Carn Meini has been identified as that used to build the inner circle at Stonehenge but archaeologists still have not worked out if the stone was carried there by man or by glaciation. There's a stone circle on Bedd Arthur and a memorial to the Welsh poet Waldo Williams at Mynachlogddu.

The hills are great for walking, running and cycling. In January 2011 I wrote about a good walk on Craig Talfynydd. For other routes see the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park website. There are many campsites, caravan sites and holiday cottages for holiday makers.
