Walking the Cambrian Way

Cambrian Way

As part of his attempt at walking the Cambrian Way, Richard Thomas (far left on picture) stopped off here at Byrdir. He managed to tackle the Cader Idris section and the Rhinog Mountains whilst staying with us. We were also happy to play host to his friends and wife who came to support him during what I think must be one of the more challenging sections of the walk.

The Cambrian Way is a fantastic concept. Starting from Cardiff, our capital city in the south then following a natural line of mountains that form a spine up the centre of Wales. The route has a fitting end, finishing in the majestic Conwy Castle in the north. I don’t think the walk is an official trail but is all the better for that perhaps. The walk remains under the radar to all but the most enthusiastic walker. The remoteness and quiet solitude is one of the walks greatest assets. ‘The mountain connoisseurs’ walk’

If you’re thinking of having a go yourself the CambrianWay.org.uk website is a good starting point.
