Black Mountain in Llanddeusant
Brecon Beacons National Park Llanddeusant Carmarthenshire Wales
The Black Mountain is not a mountain but a mountain range in the south west of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Its highest point is Fan Brycheiniog at 802m. The hills stretch from Ammanford in the south-west to Sennybridge in the north-east. There are spectacular north and east facing sandstone ridges in the north-east of the range. Indeed the vista of Fan Brycheiniog towering over the lake Llyn y Fan Fawr is probably the Brecon Beacons most memorable panorama and enjoyed by many walking the Beacons Way Trail.| The Black Mountain should not be confused with the Black Mountains in the east of the National Park, on the Welsh-English border, nor with a 702m summit in those same Black Mountains that is confusingly also called Black Mountain. | The Black Mountain is part of the Fforest Fawr Geopark. The Geopark is named after Fforest Fawr [Great Forest in Welsh] an area that extends from the edge of the Black Mountain in the west to the A470 Brecon to Merthyr Tydfil road in the east.
