The Preseli Hills lie in the Pembrokeshire National Park and their highest point is at Foel Cwmcerwyn, rising to 536 metres (1758 feet) high. The rounded hills, covered in heather and bracken and grazed by sheep, are excellent walking country. There are outcrops of Spotted Dolerite, the same rock that forms the circle of Bluestones at Stonehenge. It is not known whether the stones were transported from here to Stonehenge by glaciers or by man. The mountains are dotted with ancient remains such as hill forts, burial sites and the Celtic Golden Road, the path that traverses the length of the Preselis.
