The stone circle of Gors Fawr is the only true stone circle left in the Preseli Hills. It is believed to date to the Bronze Age, however it could be Neolithic.

It is located on open moorland south of the village of Mynachlogddu with easy public access and a layby for parking with the bonus of a panoramic view of the hills.

To the north of the stone circle are two upright standing bluestones. The most northerly of the two stones is locally known as the Dreamstone or ​Dreaming Stone as it is meant to have magical qualities, in particular at the point where your head would reach when sitting on its ledge.
