This bryncaderfaner2.jpg (10361 bytes)cairn-circle has to be one of the most visually-appealing circles in the entire British Isles, despite extensive damage to the stones both by treasure-hunters of the last century and soldiers during World War II. Fifteen stones remain of the original thirty, each standing about 6 feet, and lean outward in such a way that from a distance, it looks like a crown of thorns.

Access: 7km of track and trail, some of it through wet and boggy terrain, make this a challenge for the novice circle-hunter. Success is well worth the effort.
