Cambrian Mountains - Last Wilderness

Described by naturalist Iolo Williams as ‘The Last Wilderness of Wales’, the Cambrian Mountains are remote and wild, but rich in evidence of human activity from the earliest times to the recent past. As well as sweeping moorland, dense woodland, fast rivers and numerous lakes; the mountains contain hillforts, standing stones, burial cairns, the remains of extensive metal mining, remote and abandoned farmsteads and settlements.
