Carreg Cennen Castle
Carmarthenshire is an area of wide river estuaries and heather-clad hills. The extreme south east is encroached slightly by the industry of the Valleys, but on the whole this is an unspoilt place with few towns of any great size beyond Carmarthen itself and Llanelli on the very edge of the county. This is also Dylan Thomas country with his house at Laugharne now a museum to Wales' National Poet. The county became part of Dyfed in 1974.
A number of spectacular Castles are spread across the county but few Castles anywhere have the dramatic setting of Carreg Cennen, high on its rocky crag.
