Drum went to explore the Druids Circle above Penmaenmawr.  Also known as Meini Hirion, this wonderful and evocative stone circle is considered one of the finest examples in Britain and forms part of a complex of ancient monuments on the moorland above Penmaenmawr. The stones are thought to origionate from the Bronze age, perhaps even earlier and excovation of the sight found the remains of children which would suggest human sacrifice may have taken place! There are several walking options to get to the circle including from the town of Penmaenmawr or from Dwygyfylchi and there are many Snowdonia Heritage walking paths to follow. Drums mum wasn’t feeling that energetic that day so followed the postcode in the sat nav and left the car at the stone pillars pictured.  There are many signs posts for the ‘pilgrimage way‘ and the stone circles were easy enough to find.  We’d recommend taking a map as the route could become confusing, particularly if the weather was bad and sheep were roaming in parts so Drum spent some time on the lead.  A few wild horses were spotted and the views were incredible! We were back to the car in under 2 hours and a picnic was enjoyed at the top! Drum gives the walk 5 paws!
