Glyder - castle of the winds
Wales

A massive pile of rocks sticking out in all directions - this is the Castell y Gwent, the castle of the winds. Once you are up on the Glyders you will probably pass by and on a breezy day (most days in fact) you will understand the name!!

I pretty much had to tie down my tripod!!
