Circular Walks in the Western Beacons

Circular Walks in the Western Beacons

by: Nick Jenkins
If you are seeking walks with variety; along high, exposed mountain ridges or deep wooded valleys filled with cascading rivers, this pocket sized guide will give you all the variety you could ask for. The Western Beacons are a treasure trove for the walker who craves both dramatic scenery and relatively unspoilt isolation.
Here is antiquity; ancient standing stones, stone circles, Iron Age hillforts, Roman camps, a stunning medieval castle, high mountain lakes and lofty summit cairns. Here, too, are mile after mile of solitude, accompanied only by the whispering of the wind through the grass, soaring buzzards and, if lucky, the red kite circling overhead. Along with brief details of the history and geomorphology of the area, points of interest are encountered on each of the walks. Clear route finding instructions and sketch maps are provided.
The 10 walk locations are: Waterfall circuit - Pontneddfechan and Sgwd Clungwyn; Ystradfellte; Ystradowen and Ffrydiau Twrch; Trecastell Mountain Road and Llyn y Fan Fach; Blaen Llia, Fan Gyhirych and Fan Nedd; Mynydd Bach Trecastell and Usk reservoir; Carreg Cennen Castle; Craig y Nos and Cribarth; Gwaun Hepste, Sgwd Clungwyn and Porth yr Ogof; Blaen Llia, Fan Llia and Fan Frynach.
