Llangollen

I travelled up to Chester following my walk on Mynydd Llangyndeirne to help out my son and partner Gianna look after a newly acquired puppy, a springer named Holly.

Gianna had arranged a day off on the Tuesday and I was not required for that day and so I met with my brother in law, Andy for a walk.

The destination was to be Llangollen for a walk up to Dinas Castell Bran and then along the limestone escarpment of Creigiau Eglwyseg.

Route

It was a clear day albeit windy and the views were excellent whilst walking up the hill to the ruined castle and continued throughout the day.

Ruins of Castell Dinas Bran

Once on the escarpment we found a spot out of the wind for lunch and then carried on eventually finding a marked path leading down from the escarpment on to the lanes leading into Llangollen.

The day finished with a welcome cup of chocolate and a festive mince pie.

The rest of the week was spent doing my utmost to train the puppy to realise the toilet area was outside and that her needle sharp teeth were not for eating me. Best of luck Rhodri and G.
