  • Such a gorgeous place to visit if you are in the area and the walks are all FREE! Bonus! Ashame about the weather but it is Wales so you'd be luck if you didn't get a bit of rain on your visit hehe. Definitely a place to revisit, which I'll definitely do in the summer with the hope of the sun arriving too. Definitely camera opportunities here.
  • Lovely day out well worth a visit. Bit of a slow incline at the beginning then mostly level with a few ups and downs but easy to navigate. Easy path to follow. 2 hour round trip.
