A guidebook to 45 contrasting day walks in the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales, UK, Europe, from centres including Llandovery, Brecon, Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye, covering the four main areas: Mynydd Du, Fforest Fawr, Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. The Brecon Beacons is a place of diverse landscapes - majestic valleys, dramatic waterfalls and high mountain peaks and ridges. The circular walks in this guide avoid the better-known routes to explore unfrequented wooded gorges and upland valleys and are suitable for all abilities and all seasons. The authors' aim is to offer the reader a 'solitary guided walk' - the opportunity to enjoy the wilderness, accompanied by all the geological, historical, botanical and other facts that a bevy of expert guides might provide. Routes are split into seven geographical groups and indexed for areas of interest and difficulty and the detailed route descriptions are packed with information for walkers and walk leaders. All illustrated with OS map extracts, geological diagrams and colour photographs.
