It’s easy to miss from the road and not marked on many maps, but walk just 10 minutes from the parking area, and you’ll come to a giant, balancing boulder, standing watch over the North Gower coastline and across the Loughor estuary to the ‘mainland’.

Known as Arthur’s Stone, or Maen Ceti in Welsh, legend has it that the king found the rock in his shoe and threw it all the way from Carmarthenshire. Touched by the hand of King Arthur, the stone grew in size.

Gower is associated with mystic ley lines, and full of Bronze Age burial and ceremonial sites, so it’s no surprise that myths abound about this landscape.

It’s a neolithic chambered tomb dating back 2,500 years, with a natural fresh water spring under the stones. It allows fantastic views over the Loughor Estuary, and the north Gower coastline.
