  • Description

    Guidebook to 30 walking routes (2 to 10 miles) in Carmarthenshire, south Wales, including sections of Carmarthenshire Coast Path. Walks for all abilities, including coastal, river, forest and hill walks in Cambrian Mountains, Tywi Valley, Y Mynydd Du (Black Mountains) and Brecon Beacons. Easy access from Bristol, Cardiff and Swansea.

    This guidebook presents 30 contrasting day walks exploring the mountains, valleys and coastline of Carmarthernshire in south-west Wales. Ranging from 2 to 10 miles in length and suitable for walkers of all abilities, the routes introduce the varied walking on offer in this county, including parts of the Brecon Beacons and the Cambrian Mountains.

    Alongside detailed route descriptions and clear OS mapping, the book is packed with interesting information about the places and heritage encountered. Notes on landscape, geology and wildlife of the area are included, and for each walk there is useful practical information on transport and refreshments.

    A county of contrasts with around 1850 miles of footpaths, Carmarthernshire is a walker's paradise. Highlights include the Black Mountains (Mynydd Du), the Teifi Valley, Camarthen Bay, the southwestern Coast, and 'Dylan Thomas Country' around Laugharne.

     

    • Activities
      Walking
    • Seasons
      The walks can be done at any time of year, but the drier months from April to October would suit the higher mountain walks.
    • Centres
      Most of the walks can be reached, either by car or public transport, from Carmarthen, Llandeilo, Llanelli and Llandovery
    • Difficulty
      The walks are organised by level of difficulty, based on length, amount of ascent and the type of terrain they cover. Some are quite short with little effort required, others require considerably more time and can be quite challenging, as they head out into open country where knowledge of map and compass use is highly recommended.
    • Must See
      With mile upon mile of golden sands, breathtaking mountain scenery, fast-flowing rivers, quiet upland lakes, attractive market towns, extensive tracts of forest, evocative castle ruins, empty country lanes and a rich industrial heritage, it is not surprising that Carmarthenshire is fast becoming a walking hotspot.
