The Walk to Llyn y Fan Fach
Nantifan Barn is the starting point for Llyn y Fan Fach - don’t forget your picnic. To get there you drive back down the lane past the farm and turn left at the junction, then passing the old church carry straight on, after 1 mile watch out for the Llyn y Fan Fach sign to the left and after a further 1.5 miles passing Blaenau farm house you will come to a gate with a waterworks notice. Turn right here, steeply down through a gate to the riverside. The track ahead is now very rough and parking will be found on the right. The total of 2.5 miles up to the lake and back will take about 1.5 hours.
Ten minutes or so up the track brings you to a building, two gates and a system of small dams and sluices. Higher up, the precipitous nose of Bannau Sir Gaer comes in view, and a few minutes later you see the rounded crest of the highest Carmarthen Van, 2362 feet, farther to the left. At this point you have about 15 minutes more to walk.
A building and a small dam can hardly spoil the wild grandeur of Llyn y Fan Fach, gleaming darkly under the sandstone precipices of the Vans. The walk back will be grand too - downhill every yard of the way.
