Being located near the summit of the road between Garn Fawr and Garn Fechan, the elevated position and remote location gives good views of the sky, with little local light pollution.
The National Trust parking area, although slightly sloping is well surfaced. The nearby hills offer an interesting backdrop even if they do reduce overall visibility in certain directions. The Milky Way is very clearly visible. Excellent viewing to the south, as far as the eye can see between east south east and west south west.
