21 Y Garn North, Llanllyfni
PRN 599 NGR SH551526 SAM


Cairn, 10m diameter and 2m high, built of haphazardly piled rocks. It has been considerably dug into to create a shelter in its centre and walls built up round the edge. A large slab visible in the hollowed centre could have formed the side or cap of an original prehistoric cist. The cairn is situated on the summit of the crags overlooking the Nantlle valley with dramatic views down the valley to SE as well as W towards the coast.
