Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire Walks

Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire Walks

by: Brian Conduit revised by Tom Hutton
This guidebook contains 150 miles of enthralling walking, following outstanding circular routes along the Atlantic hugging Pembrokeshire Coast Path from the spectacular cliff scenery at Dinas Head, via the superb views over the Marloes Peninsula to the beautiful beaches at Saundersfoot and Tenby. Inland walks visit medieval castles at Dinefwr and Newcastle Emlyn, and climax with an exhilarating ridge walk along the prehistoric trackway across Mynydd Preseli.

Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire have their own individual characteristics, but at the same time share some common features. They were both part of the ancient Welsh Kingdom of Deheubarth and possess numerous ruined castles. Both have much superb, varied and unspoiled countryside that makes them a paradise for walkers.

Pembrokeshire has some of the most spectacular coastal scenery and finest stretches of coast path in Britain. Carmarthenshire is noted for its rolling hills, wide river valleys and a coastline of long sandy beaches fringing Carmarthen Bay, broken into the combined estuaries of the Gwendraeth, Towey and Taf Rivers.

Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed 1:25,000 scale maps from Ordnance Survey and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations. The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Details are included for useful organisations, refreshment stops and places to leave your car.
