Garth Hill (Garth Mountain) dominates the skyline behind Cardiff and is instantly recognisable by the 5,000 year old tumulus at its highest point. An easy walk up from the village of Pentyrch, or across fields from Efail Isaf, the walker is rewarded with some of the best views in the area: stunning panoramas of the Severn Estuary to the south and the Brecon Beacons to the north. The hill acquired movie fame in film "The Englishman who went up a hill and came down a Mountain" that was based on a story originating in the village of Taff's Well that lies in its shadow.
