Getting There

A particularly striking example and one of the largest iron age hill forts in Wales can be found in the west of the Carn Goch National Park impressively located on a hilltop whose presence dominates the surrounding countryside. This walk travels through the hill fort with its massive stone defences and also offers excellent views of the surrounding hills.

Carn Goch is one of the remotest parts of the Brecon Beacons National Park (SN 690 243). Head to the hamlet of Bethlehem three to four miles outside the small town of Llangadog. Just outside Bethlehem a narrow single track road traverses for 1 1/2 miles approximately until reaching a small car park where parking is available.

Outstanding views if u pick the right day, unfortunately I went on a cloudy one. First part of the walk has a well marked out path when u get the larger fort at the top of the hill the path is hard to find.
