Access: Travelling the A465 from Merthyr Tydfil towards Glynneath go towards Pontneddfechan, A4109. (Left off the duel carriageway). After going under the underpass take the first right at the first crossroads onto the B4242. After a pub, The Angel, followed by the Pontneddfechan’s Public Conveniences. Park somewhere in this area and take the parked footpath opposite the WC and behind The Angel Inn, through some metal gates onto a well made up path which runs next to the river Nedd Fechan. After about 20 minutes there is an iron bridge where the river, Pyrddin joins Nedd Fechan. Keep on the same side of the river and you will reach the Scwd Gwladus. There is a small viewing platform here. To get to the top of the falls either return to the bridge and cross here and go up the right hand bank of the river Pyrddin or ford the river. The rocks on this river and particularly at the top of the fall are like ice.

 

 

Comment: Good path easy walking.
