Weathering and frost-shattering on the summits of the Glyderau mountains has left a legacy of natural geological sculptures, such as these at Castell y Gwynt, or 'Castle of the Winds' – an outcrop of claw-like rocks atop some of the highest ground in the country. This large plateau, which runs just above 3,000ft in Snowdonia National Park, links the summits of Glyder Fawr and Glyder Fach, and offers panoramic views of Snowdon and the Carneddau mountain ranges, and out towards the coast.
