      “The most marvellous of all Abyssinian landscapes opened before us, as we looked across a gorge that was clouded amethyst to the peaks of Simyen.” Rosita Forbes, From Red Sea to Blue Nile – A Thousand Miles of Ethiopia (). A book describing a journey around the Isle of Anglesey. Walking the Anglesey Coastal Path - all miles of it - provides a unique perspective from which to survey the island, especially in the company of an enthusiastic guide. People and places, past and present, are celebrated in this beautiful book.

    Cadair Idris (NRW), Southern Snowdonia, LL39 1AX The Cadair Idris National Nature Reserve is renowned for its striking geology and wildlife. The Minffordd Path to the summit of Cadair Idris is a popular route that leads through the Reserve. Follow the footpaths to the other Wainwright summits, such as the Langdale Pikes, or take a more leisurely stroll around Tarn Hows. Airton, North Yorkshire. Whether its picture postcard villages or the solitude of the unbroken heather moorland the Yorkshire Dales Country Park offers some of the finest walking in the UK.

    The following sections from Section-2 through to Section-5 will describe each of the hills in more detail. Section-2 Moel y Golfa: . As explained in Section-1 Long Mountain is higher than this summit but in all truth it falls out of the actual Breidden Hills range so will be mentioned later on in Section First we have three pictures of Moel y Golfa. Traversing the heartland of Wales, the challenging route crosses the Brecon Beacons, the Cambrian Mountains and Snowdonia, passing through two national parks and visiting many of the country's iconic summits, including Pen y Fan, Pumlumon, Cadair Idris and Snowdon itself.
