Rhandirmwyn

Another sunny day and Mrs navigator had suggested a walk in the upper Afon Tywi area near Rhandirmwyn taking in the tributary of the Afon Pysgotwr.

Route 

We parked in a lay near “Burial Chamber” shown on the OS map and adjacent to the camping/caravan site. There is a new bridge across the river. We used to launch our canoes at this point on the river but as well as the new bridge there are also new fences which looks like it would be much harder to launch.

After looking at a view of the rocky Tywi where it meets  the Pysgotwr we had a coffee break.

The route now led into woodland and a nature reserve and then steeply uphill passing an isolated property where we had a chat with the owner who was sitting outside tying flies. This looked a lovely spot in the sun but no doubt a different story once the weather turns to typical West Wales rain and mist!

A diversion took us close to an unnamed summit with extensive views to the Brecon Beacons and Carmarthen Fans.

We followed a forestry road downhill and eventually back to the Afon Tywi and the now closed Tywi Inn. Here we crossed the bridge and walked back to the car but not before letting Father Christmas know  our addresses.

Here`s hoping, this weather continues.
