One of the more interesting hills in Wales due to having a name that just feels right and from being a proper pointed hill. At a very precise 598.8m it is one of the highest hills in Wales as well.

It is in Radnor Forest, alongside three official mountains (Great Rhos, Black Mixen and Bache Hill), but it often dominates the skyline of the area due to its prominence.

If you’re in the area to tick off the three mountains you can definitely include Whimble in the route whilst you are here.
