Yes this is the filming location for Edoras in Lord of the Rings. It is as beautiful as you might expect if not more, and the completely untouched landscape will leave you breathless. You generally will not see too many people up here. Watch out for cow patties, but otherwise it's an easy hike.

Breathtaking vista and magnificent environment. Short walk not exposed, track easy to follow. Also good for families, no wheelchairs. Private land so respect it! Seems also to be a perfect snowshoes walk during winter perhaps parking the car before the slope and taking an easy 7h walk.
