Chwarel y Fan

Chwarel y Fan is located in the Black Mountains to the south-east of Wales. At 679 m (2,227 ft), it is the highest point in the county of Monmouthshire. The top forms part of a ridgeline that extends south-eastwards from Rhos Dirion to Bâl Mawr. 

The summit can be reached from the car park found at Llanthony Priory. Here, the path leads northwards through the Vale of Ewyas to Capel-y-ffin where the trail then rises steadily up to the thin ridged summit where a cairn can be found.
