631 Clwydian Hills

Cilcain means beautiful corner and indeed this village set beneath the heathery Clwydian Hills lives up to its name. Once there were seven pubs, where strong ale was consumed in quantity leading to riotous evenings, but now you'll have to make do with just one to slake your thirst after a walk along this magnificent range of hills.
