Tour of Brecon Beacons, Wales

 

The Brecon Beacons are a mountain range in South Wales. In a narrow sense, the name refers to the range of Old Red Sandstone peaks which lie to the south of Brecon. Sometimes referred to as "the central Beacons" they include South Wales' highest mountain, Pen y Fan.

Firstn to the famous viewpoint over the Wye Valley at Symonds Yat, England. Just prior to reaching Symonds Yat we found a magical woodland carpeted with bluebell flowers.

After Symonds Yat we moved into Wales and explored the stunning, Brecon Beacons scenery. First we went to Pontneddfechan and then Ystradfelte. At the latter we elected for an approx 25 min hike to see the Sgwd Clun-Gwyn waterfall.

In course of our travels we encountered many sheep plus wild, Brecon Beacons ponies.

Finally we drove across the Beacons landscape to Llanwrtyd Wells, the smallest town in Britain.

About 6.00 pm we reached our lodgings at the village of Felinfach, near Brecon.
