    Amazing walk to the top of an amazing mountain! Typically takes 4 hours to reach the summit and 2 hours to get down. Views are great on a clear day. Don't take the train if it's a cloudy day you won't be able to see a thing from the summit just endless fog. Amazing hike for beginner's.

    The top of the world! If you're in Wales, anyway. The view from the top is cracking when the weather's good, but we didn't have such luck on our trip. To snap a photo of the summit cairn, you may have to stand in line.

    I prefer to walk up and down, but in truth I don't think it matters how you get up to the top, just get there to take in the view.

    Each route is so different.
    Even if it's misty at the top, you get a great sense of achievement getting to the summit. Remember to leave enough time and take snacks.

    It’s a highlight in that’s its at the top of a magnificent mountain. Other than that it’s one of the most hideous mountain tops I’ve ever stood on. Way too many people up there and the cafe area is like the back of a football stand!

    A great sense of achievement. Well worth the view but can be foggy.
