Walks Around Machynlleth

Walks Around Machynlleth

by: Mike Thompson and Marit Olsson
Machynlleth is a historic Welsh market town surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain, making it an excellent base for walking. All the twenty circular routes in this book are within a 10-mile radius of the town, and follow tracks and paths which explore intimate valleys, tumbling streams, shady woodlands and wild moorland with magnificent panoramic views.

Each walk section begins with a short overview plus directions to the start. This is followed by numbered paragraphs of detailed route instructions supported by a attractive clear sketch map cross referenced to the paragraph numbers. A summary index at the beginning of the book giving distances and estimated times helps in selecting a suitable walk. A reasonably fit person will be able to tackle any of the routes, although two of them require some hill walking experience.
