A guidebook to 45 contrasting day walks in the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales, UK, Europe, from centres including Llandovery, Brecon, Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye, covering the four main areas: Mynydd Du, Fforest Fawr, Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. The Brecon Beacons is a place of diverse landscapes – majestic valleys, dramatic waterfalls and high mountain peaks and ridges. The circular walks in this guide avoid the better-known routes to explore unfrequented wooded gorges and upland valleys and are suitable for all abilities and all seasons. The authors' aim is to offer the reader a 'solitary guided walk' – the opportunity to enjoy the wilderness, accompanied by all the geological, historical, botanical and other facts that a bevy of expert guides might provide. Routes are split into seven geographical groups and indexed for areas of interest and difficulty and the detailed route descriptions are packed with information for walkers and walk leaders. All illustrated with OS map extracts, geological diagrams and colour photographs.

This book has the ability to be used as your very own ‘Personal Guide’. It was recommended to me by a work colleague as we both enjoy walking.

As a keen walker living close to the Brecon Beacons and camping there weekly throughout the year, I was very keen to accept the invitation from Cicerone to review their range of local walking guides, especially as I have previously written walk routes myself and know the local area and its footpaths well. As a relative ‘local’ I was curious to see the routes included in book but stress I am a casual stroller, not one of the more serious hikers often seen in the Beacons!

This is an excellent guidebook with everything you need whether you are out for half a day, or on an extended walking tour – it makes it easy to choose a suitable circular walk or link together parts of walks to form a linear route. It has extracts from OS maps instead of confusing diagrams, clear reliable directions, interesting general information on geology, history, and wildlife, and enticing photographs. It also fits easily into a pocket!

Highly recommended

This pocket-sized book featuring 45 walks is a great guide to exploring the Brecon Beacons. It contains a wide range of information, photographs, illustrations and maps. The outline of levels of difficulty of the walks towards the end of the book is also extremely useful along with contact details of information centres in the Brecon Beacons and information regarding the starting points of the walks.
