  • At 2,969 feet (905 m), Aran Fawddwy is the highest point in Britain to the south of the Snowdon massif, yet it sees a tiny fraction of the footfall of nearby Cadair Idris or Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons.


    It is the principal summit of a long rocky ridge that also includes the characterful Aran Benllyn
