Mwdwl-eithin, Flintshire

Mwdwl-eithin (532 metres) is the highest point on the Denbigh Moors of North Wales. This gently rising mountain lies about 10 miles east of Betws-y-Coed. On its summit is a trig point and a ruined building which still provides shelter against a storm. A few metres away is a large raised stone cairn. The whole area is underlain by Silurian mudstone which was extensively glaciated during the last British glaciation. The whole area is now very wet moorland dominated by heather and rushes.
