Mynydd Myddfai

It was just Paul and I today and we chose a walk from the Cicerone publication, “Walking in Carmarthenshire”, which was to lead us onto Mynydd Myddfai.

Route

We parked at the Myddfai Village Community Hall and Visitor centre. We were too early for a coffee but we should be back well before 1700 when it closes.

The first part of the walk follows the Physicians Trail – a leaflet can be obtained from the centre, although a reprint was awaited – leading to the Physicians Well. From here the walk climbed steadily to the trig point on the summit of Mynydd Myddfai.

Pretty

There were some good views of the surrounding countryside including  the Carmarthen Fans, Pen y Fan and Corn Ddu in the Brecon Beacons. The former had some cloud cover but those in the Beacons were clear.

Carmarthen Fans

We had lunch at the trig point and could see the forecast rain rapidly approaching and so fully kitted out we continued our walk.

Over tousers? Yes

We thought we could take a short cut down the hill but it led us astray for a short while but we were soon back on track without the necessity of calling out mountain rescue.

The way back to Myddfai was by way of a quiet lane where we celebrated our day with coffee and bara brith.
