These wild, mysterious, rolling moors roamed by sheep and ponies provide a superb terrain for walkers and horse riders. Although climbing to just 1760 feet at the highest point they afford (on a clear day) exceptional all round views to the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland, Snowdonia in the north, the Brecon Beacons to the east and the Bristol Channel and West Country to the south.
