Cadair Idris

Cadair Idris looms menacing and primeval over the surrounding landscape

Cadair Idris (OS grid ref:- SH711130) or to use its anglicised title of Cader Idris, derives its name meaning 'Chair of Idris' from the giant warrior poet of Welsh legend. Cadair Idris consists of a massive 11km long ridge and although only the 19th highest mountain in Wales, is the second most popular mountain in the country after Mount Snowdon. 

The summit, Penygadair (Top of the Chair) at 2,927 feet (892m), offers a superb panorama of mountain scenery. The mountain is notorious for its low cloud but on a clear day it is possible to see the mountains of Snowdon and the Rhinog mountain range as well as the Lleyn Peninsula and the hills of Shropshire, the Long Mynd, the Wrekin and occasionally Ireland.
