About the reserve
Re-creation work is taking place after this heathland was ploughed up for agriculture in the 1950s. Various bird life can be seen here, including skylarks, short-eared owls and hen harriers. Caer Bran lies on the northern and eastern slopes of Bartinney Downs, below an early prehistoric enclosure and it is well worth visiting the nearby Iron Age village of Carn Euny
