This hill north of Crickhowell is also called Table Mountain because of its unlikely flat top, which boasts its own well-preserved Iron Age hill fort. How it was ever viable for more than short-term occupation beats the imagination. It is a hugely atmospheric spot.
It is a steady and reasonably easy walk, with fine views to enjoy on a clear day.
Expect unpredictable weather: this is one of the wetter bits of the UK!
