Llyn y Fan Fach, Brecon Beacons National Park

(5/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Llyn y Fan Fach is a dammed lake of approximately 10 hectares on the northern margin of the Black Mountain in Carmarthenshire, South Wales and lying within the Brecon Beacons National Park. The lake lies at an altitude of about 1660 feet, or just over 500 metres, immediately to the north of the ridge of the Carmarthen Fans and at the top of a road which leads to a small dam from the village of Llanddeusant. It is the smaller of two lakes within this mountain massif: the slightly larger Llyn y Fan Fawr is about 2 miles or about 2.5 km to the east. The latter lake is about 300 feet higher, making the cliffs behind look less severe than those surrounding Llyn y Fan Fach.
