A must see, go to the top and take in the breathtaking views. Perfect on a clear day. Not a great deal to see, but worth it for the beautiful views.

Well worth popping up to see this especially as its close to the two railway stations and slate museum. Great views too. We stumbled upon it while doing a walk around the lake which is an easy 2-3 hours with only a couple of short...More
