Fan Brycheiniog is the highest peak at 2633 feet in the Black Mountain region of the Brecon Beacons National Park in southern Wales. Along with her sister Bannau Sir Gaer at a height of 2457 feet. This is a strenuous walk but the views are breathtaking.
With the Mumbles only half an hour away. The charming seaside town boasts an arrangement of local shops a stones throw from the city of Swansea. Gateway to the Gower Peninsula’s coastline this is a great place to start your adventure.
The rugged coastal walkways of Rhossili bay are a must. Personally speaking its best when the sun sets. With miles of sand beach and the wreck of Norwegian barque Helvetia, memories and conversation can be had from a long time after.
If you want the view, without the effort, then a good way to do this will be for you to take a trip on the Gwili Railway. The journey takes you into the Carmarthen valley especially beautiful when autumn comes.
With it's history steeped in conflict and conquerors, Wales has some of the best preserved castles anywhere in Great Britain. The ruins of Carreg Cennen Castle from the 13th century are fifteen minutes away by car. From Carreg you can walk across the valley to Dinefwr Castle and maybe stop for lunch in Llandeilo.
Brecon is a wonderful place to visit. Forty minutes of spectacular views by car, including a sleeping giant, leads you to Historic Brecon. This is where you can take a canal trip through the valleys and slowly watch the world go by.
