Handy guidebook describing 41 circular walks in Pembrokeshire. Routes range from short strolls to full-day excursions, through the coastal scenery of Pembroke's national park to the Preseli Hills, Daugleddau's hidden tidal reaches, and by rivers and woodland. With walks ranging between 2 and 12 miles, there's something for everyone.
The spectacular coastal scenery of Pembroke's national park is only one of the county's many facets explored in this collection of varied and interesting circular walks.
The routes take you through the Preseli Hills (from which ancient man took the 'bluestones' for Stonehenge), the Daugleddau's hidden tidal reaches (once busy with coal barges), deep wooded gorges (whose fast-flowing streams powered long-forgotten mills), prehistoric hill forts, medieval castles, isolated churches and many intriguing places that await discovery.
With routes ranging between 2 and 12 miles (20km), there is something for everyone, often incorporating places to visit or a welcoming pub or cafe en route. Nowhere is the walking overly demanding, but be aware that, particularly along some sections of the coast, paths can make successive steep climbs and descents.
All year round. May be snow on the Presli Hills in winter.
