    The views from up at the cairn are fantastic if its a clear day. Of its raining then take shelter in the small hut nearby.

    Complex and striking, Cadair Idris is the Snowdon of southern Snowdonia: a honeypot mountain renowned for its imperious cliffs, enticing ridges and pretty tarns. It is a peak shrouded in myth. Its name, meaning ‘Chair of Idris’, derives from the Welsh legend of a giant who created a mountainous seat for stargazing.
