Pen Y Fan

The Brecon Beacons rank among some of Britain’s most distinctive mountains, with plane-cut edges, horizontal terraces and flat summits defining their elegant profiles. There are many fine mountains in south Wales, but viewed from Brecon, Pen y Fan is the highest and the most instantly beguiling. Combined with a walk up Cribyn – to make the most of the dramatic north face – this is south Wales’ most scenically spectacular walk.

Best route: the full horseshoe, from the south. Park in Taf Fechan Forest at NY369134.
