Walks by UK National Parks and AONBs

This is probably the place most people need to start. With walks in the national parks of Snowdonia, Lake District, Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and the Brecon Beacons. AONBs include Llyn Peninsula, Anglesey, Clwydian Hills and Shropshire – with the  Cambrian Mountains and Mid Wales joining once the powers that be see some sense.

Walks in Wales

Lets not beat around the bush, most of our walks are in Wales! With walking areas as diverse as Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons, Cambrian Mountains and Mid Wales, Llyn Peninsula and the Wales Coast Path. We’ve also got a section on Mountain Biking in Wales for good measure.

Walks in England

England has a varied selection of walking areas. From the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and Shropshire; to name but a few.

Walks in Scotland

Boasting the highest mountain – Ben Nevis – and most of the highest mountains on this island in the Munros, there’s nowhere better for mountain walking in the UK.

Walks in Northern Ireland

We only have a few walks here at the moment due to technical reasons! Basically, we use OS Mapping and Northern Ireland is covered by OSNI. We’re working on sorting this out so we can include such wonderful areas as the Mournes and Sperrin hills to Mud and Routes.

Walks in the Republic of Ireland.

As for Northern Ireland, our mapping system doesn’t work outside of Wales, Scotland and England. We will be looking to adding these in the future.

Here’s just about every walk in no particular order if you’re the serendipitous type, otherwise click through above.

A Stroll in the Parc

Getting to this walk is probably the hardest part! The Llyn Sarnau car park can either be reached by the minor road that passes the Ty Hyll off the A5, or a minor road that starts from near Gwydir Castle on the B5106. The latter is the better road. Once here, make sure to be …

Lon Gwyrfai Rough Route

This is a pleasant run or cycle from Caernarfon to Waunfawr and back again.. It’s mainly on country lanes, but there’s one stretch over the flanks of Moel Smytho that takes you over a pleasant green lane that’s almost easy enough for a hybrid. Back through Waunfawr, where you may well stop off at the …

All hot and bothied.

Only very rarely are we able to experience something totally new in an environment that has become so familiar. The Carneddau are one of my favourite walking are as and I realised that I know the area well, except for a small section. I’ve walked nearby, but never to Llyn Eigiau or the neighbouring valleys …
