The Allt yr Esgair near Llansantffraed is locally known as the Allt. Its Welsh name means ‘wooded slope of the ridge’. The summit is topped off with an Iron Age hillfort and you can see why, with far reaching views down the Usk Valley and stunning panoramics of both the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons. This is a great spot for photographs and a picnic, weather permitting, so be sure to take some provisions.
