Its a great place to be on a frosty December morning. If the sky is clear you can see Snowdonia in Wales with its peaks full of snow. Wrap up well and be prepared weather can change so fast up here.

Whether you go for a picnic a pub lunch a drive or a walk it doesn't matter. What does matter is that you do go........and enjoy! Easy access. Relatively safe. Be sensible......enjoy and be respectful of the flora and fauna.
