The Skirrid (Ysgyryd Fawr)

Ysgyryd Fawr is an easterly outlier of Wales’ Black Mountains and the easternmost component of the Brecon Beacons National Park. However, locals frequently refer to the hill simply as The Skirrid.

This strenuous hike takes you through woods and out onto open slopes before a hard ascent to the peak with spectacular views. View the surrounding area and St Michael’s Church from Skirrid’s peak.

Venture out on an energetic hike up the Skirrid…
