Yesterday morning we hiked up the Dysynni Valley up to the Welsh Fortress Castell-y-Bere, built by the Welsh warrior Llewelyn the Great in 1220 to protect the lands in west Gwynedd. Nearby we visited the small church of Llanfihangel-y-Pennant in Abergynolwyn, at the foot of the iconic mountain Cader Idris. Lunch at the medieval market town of Machynlleth before a visit to the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth to visit the exhibition on ancient texts on King Arthur.
Tea time was down at the seaside in Aberystwyth where our Wild Wales Tour bus trip will be staying in a sea room view of Cardigan Bay this week. Our Walkabout team walked down this small alley last night to share our last meal together at the Torrence Pub in Dolgellau.
