  1. Carnedd Y Filiast, Cairn of the Greyhound – which greyhound please, and why? Is therte some local folklore or story to explain this place name? Stunning scenery 😉

    • Thanks for stopping by, Kris.

      Iwan Arfon Jones’ ‘Place-names in Snowdonia’ isn’t particularly helpful with this one, giving only the translation ‘Cairn of the Greyhound bitch’.

      There is a record in the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales’ site, but this refers to another peak with same name, located in the Migneint, north of Llyn Celyn. Of that one, it says “There is a legend associated with St Helen, whose greyhound this monument is traditionally thought to commemorate.”
