Description

This route uses the Heart of Wales trail and Beacons Way section - and is all the better for it - you know you have a trusted well maintained route with access. This may not be the most direct route but by getting up on the ridge you get the best views across the Tywi valley and across to the start of the Bannau Brechiniogs. It would be a mistake to do this walk between Llandeilo and Llangadog without taking in Garn Goch a major Iron Age settlement with amazing views and a great place for bird spotting (kites, pipits, swallows etc). The walk closer to Llangadog is more open agricultural whereas towards Llandeilo is full of little wooded meadows. This walk uses country lanes but you will hardly encounter any traffic as it gets quite remote. Llandeilo is a lovely small town full of painted houses, an impressive bridge and a good variety of cafes. There is a train service between Llangadog and Llandeilo. There are also good views to Castell Carreg Cennen sitting on a rocky outcrop below the Bannau Brechiniogs

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Great walk with lots of variety : meadows, woods, rivers, great views, castle, mountains, ancient monument and a ton of nature. I was very lucky in that the country lanes were packed with wild flowers and all the meadows will buttercups. It was a fairly warm day with blue sky and fairly quiet for most of the way. Saw a few other walkers - which has been a bit of a rarity on the Heart of Wales Trail strangely. There are fantastic views from the top of the ridge. The country lanes were incredibly quite - saw just one farmer.
You could uses the Beacons Way to extend this walk to Castell Carreg Cennen. Also Trichrug is worth a climb (just slightly off the route) as you can see across to the coast. Although not the most direct route it was probably the most interesting ways to get between the two towns - which I think is the most important factor if you are putting in the effort to walk 10+ miles. Garn Goch is a good stopping point to take in the vast scale of this old Iron Age settlement but also spot the different birds.
