This is exactly the same as told to me by a man in beddgelert over 60 years ago whilst on a camping holiday with my parents. I now live in Brisbane Queensland it is great to relive the old days. Thank you so much.

Thank you for the story, it helped me out a lot.This story is probably one of the saddest 'Myths' or 'chwedl', (in Welsh)anyway if any one is doing a homework on it I just want to say a Mabinogi is a collection of 4 myths in welsh culture.Just a fact for you.
