The Begwyns to Clyro, Brecon Beacons

A fairly moderate walk located in a beautiful area of Mid Wales, this walk can be made as long or a short as you like with many short circular routes available. For those who wish to tackle the full 7.5 miles at once, you’ll be treated to stunning views of the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons, and Radnor Hills. Upon reaching the final stretch of a walk that is described by the National Trust as “a top mountain walk with none of the climb”, you will be able to indulge at The Baskerville Arms in Clyro.

A Circuit from Beddgelert, Snowdonia

Encompassing a little bit of local legend, this circuit is another moderate route located within Snowdonia in North Wales. Measuring around 5.9 miles, this route will see you start at the pretty village of Beddgelert before traversing the Pass of Aberglaslyn and ascending Cwm Bychan for unparalleled views of Snowdonia National Park and then making your way back to Beddgelert via Llyn Dinas and the Sygun Copper Mine. After you have sampled the scenery, Welsh heritage, and Gelert’s Grave, the Tanronnen Inn is a great place to refuel.

This is a relatively short walk located in West Wales offering spectacular coastal views. Set off from the village of Porthgain and follow the coast path to The Blue Lagoon, a “sea quarry” towards the north of Abereiddy, before continuing along the coastal route to Pwll Caerog. Along the way you will be treated to hidden beaches and unmatched coastal scenery. Either return the way you came or go cross-country to return to Porthgain and the Sloop Inn.
