Black Mountains Falconry Centre, South Wales

4.8
Not to be confused with the Black Mountains.The Black Mountain (Y Mynydd Du) is a mountain range in South and West Wales, straddling the county boundary between Carmarthenshire and Powys and forming the westernmost range of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Its highest point is Fan Brycheiniog at 802 metres or 2,631 ft. The Black Mountain also forms a part of the recently created Fforest Fawr Geopark.NameThe Black Mountain should not be confused with the Black Mountains in the east of the National Park, nor with a summit in the Black Mountains that is confusingly also called Black Mountain. In his description of a Blak Montayne, the antiquarian John Leland refers to a massif extending between Carmarthen and Monmouth i.e. what is now considered to be the Brecon Beacons in the wider modern sense of that term, thus also including the Black Mountains and the intervening high ground of Fforest Fawr.The term "Carmarthen Fans" is sometimes used inaccurately to describe a large part of this massif, whereas it should be restricted to the peaks along the northern escarpment, west of the border with Powys (formerly Brecknockshire), beyond which (to the east) is Fan Brycheiniog. The term thus includes Picws Du and Waun Lefrith, both of which lie to the west of Fan Foel and Fan Brycheiniog.

  • Absolute stunning! Good to drive around, good to hike. Can be very steep at times but totally worth it.
  • Beautiful Scenery, lucky to have caught some good weather. Mountain drive was great, I'd recommend it.
