Good for a wee trot, this hill make a great day out for a route that is not that strenuous. Can be used as a poor weather alternative if Snowdon is in poor condition. Many variations for such a small hill.

So much better than Snowdon. It is a challenging path up the boulder field, but the views from Devil's Kitchen and further up the mountain are stunning.
