Not possibly, but actually. :clap:
Over to you. :D

Thanks, I really should have got that in one, but my memory has dimmed somewhat. :D Back later when I've searched out a pic.

It is. Well spotted, and I didn't have to use my Mermaid's Pool clue. Over to you.

'Remote top' is often a strong hint for 'Elan Valley' luckily!

Less remote, what hill am I on the way up here?

Depending which way you turn now, are you going up Mynydd Sygyn, or maybe Moel y Dyniewyd?

I'm about to turn about 180deg (and then take a left further up), but it's definitely Moel y Dyniewyd! Full marks :clap: and your turn, Mal.

Thanks. Took a bit of working of angles and contours, but narrowed it down.

Where is this beach?

This was a day when the big hills were a bit wild, so we drove for a fairly short distance from our lakeside campsite.
