Another cracking weather day to look forward to and we were off to Cilycwm in the upper Afon Tywi area. Daisy was disappointed as Paul was slumming it in Crickhowell celebrating a birthday.
The “Navigator” did inform us that the chosen route although on the map may not be there on the ground but it was. In addition Carmarthen Council who I frequently grumble about had clearly been investing money installing new gates and waymarks, hooray!
We headed north to climb the unnamed hill near Penfedw Fawr where we had our first coffee break. from there we entered the woodlands of Cwm Rhaeadr and could see in the distance the waterfall which gives its name to the cwm.
We went a little off piste, talking you see, which meant a climb but well worth it with the views which enfolded.
We descended down to the Afon Tywi and walked through the campsite in Rhandirmwyn – recommended and then stayed close to the river as walked downstream to Dolachddu. My gadget stopped working here but the route continued along the quiet lane back to the car.
