The County of Carmarthenshire.

County of Carmarthenshire with scenes, views, pictures, photographs, landscapes, locations and places of interest.
Carmarthenshire (Sir Gaerfyrddin) is generally upland and mountainous with Fforest Fawr and Black Mountain extending into the east of the county and the Cambrian Mountains into the north contributing to some spectacularly beautiful landscapes. The coast on the southern border is dotted with many fishing villages and sandy beaches. There are market towns, historic buildings, including castles, heritage railways and gardens such as the National Botanic Garden of Wales. The Brecon Beacons National Park extends into the eastern part of the county.

Carmarthenshire is also interesting geologically with the oldest Cambrian rocks. There are also conglomerates, sandstones and shales, with beds of volcanic ash and lava of Arenig (Ordovician) age, and areas of intense folding and faulting. The Llandeilo shales at Llandeilo are famed for their trilobites and we have, ourselves, found one in that area.
